fire risk assessment services

Fire Risk Assessments for your Hertfordshire business are a legal requirement. Failure to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment can result in your insurance policy becoming invalid and can also place those who use the premises at risk.

It is the legal responsibility of the ‘responsible person’ to organise Fire Risk Assessments. This person can be: the employer, the owner or landlord of your premises, or anyone else with control of the premises, for example the occupier, a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor. If there is more than one ‘responsible person’ they must work together to meet the legal obligations.

The Law

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 or the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006, it is the legal duty of the ‘responsible person’ to implement and maintain a fire management plan for each property which must include the following points:

  • Fire Risk Assessment Process
  • Carrying out a Fire Risk Assessment of the premises and regular review
  • A written record of each Fire Risk Assessment must be kept (NB this applies to businesses with five or more staff members)
  • Informing staff or their representatives of identified risks
  • Putting in place and maintaining appropriate safety measures
  • Emergency planning
  • Providing staff information, fire safety instruction and training

Failure to implement a comprehensive plan including all of the above could result in a fine, imprisonment, or both.
