fire risk assessment services

If you are responsible for safety in your office building, you must ensure regular Fire Risk Assessments are carried out. Risk assessments will identify potential fire hazards, including sources of ignition and materials that will fuel a fire, as well as the people who will be at risk. The law governing Fire Risk Assessments is called the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, also known as the RRO.

Legal responsibility for Fire Risk Assessment office and shop

Under fire safety regulations, you have an obligation to appoint a ‘responsible person’ who will be responsible for ensuring your office or shop has appropriate fire safety measures in place. This person can be an employer, owner, landlord or other occupant, for example director or manager. Often there is more than one ‘responsible person’ and they must work together to meet your company’s legal responsibilities.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 (and its associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006) state it is up to the ‘responsible person’ to implement and maintain a fire management plan for each property they are responsible for. This includes:

  • Carrying out Fire Risk Assessments of all your office or shop and evaluate them regularly

  • Informing staff or their representatives about the risks you have identified
  • Putting appropriate safety measures in place and maintaining them on a regular basis
  • Planning for an emergency
  • Providing your employees with all the information, fire safety instruction and training they need to know in the event of a fire
