Fire Risk Assessments - Ensuring your safety

At NPG Fire Safety, we believe that fire safety is of utmost importance in any establishment. One of the biggest problems we see, almost daily, is how little business owners know about their legal obligations to ensure adequate fire safety measures, therefore Fire Risk Assessments are often the starting point when we take on a new client.

What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A Fire Risk Assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of a property’s fire safety measures, identifying potential hazards and risks. This assessment helps to ensure that the necessary precautions are in place to prevent fires and minimise damage in the event of a fire.

Why are Fire Risk Assessments important?

Fire Risk Assessments are crucial for ensuring the safety of your property, employees, and customers. By identifying potential fire hazards, you can take steps to minimise the risk of a fire occurring. This can include implementing fire safety measures such as fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, and emergency lighting, as well as ensuring that employees are properly trained on fire safety procedures.

Fire Risk Assessments are also a legal requirement in the United Kingdom. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines or even legal action, as well as putting the safety of your employees and customers at risk.

What does this mean for you?

If you own non-domestic premises or a multi-occupied residential building in England or Wales, you’re obliged by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to take reasonable steps to protect all relevant people. A Fire Risk Assessment should be undertaken to determine the suitability of the existing fire safety arrangements and the minimum fire precautions required for life safety. The ‘Responsible Person’ must appoint a competent person to assist them in carrying out or reviewing a Fire Risk Assessment. This person should have sufficient training, experience, and knowledge relevant to fire safety.

This is where we come in.

Fire Risk Assessments are often viewed as a ‘box ticking’ exercise. However, it’s more complex than that, and it’s our job to help you meet your legal obligations with the minimum of fuss.

Our qualified team has carried out thousands of Fire Risk Assessments, so there’s nothing we’ve not encountered before. We sort out everything from the small details to the complex issues. We also regularly address requirements of enforceable notices served by the fire authorities.

The result is that our assessments are direct and jargon-free and provide sound advice on what is needed to meet the minimum life safety requirements.
