If you have responsibility for any building other than a ‘single private dwelling’, you need a suitably competent person to conduct a Fire Risk Assessment. For example, you might be responsible for an office, a shop, a school or residential care home or you could be a private landlord. A Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement in all these cases and many others.

What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A Fire Risk Assessment is a review of your building and its occupants to identify potential fire risks and make recommendations to improve safety. If five or more people work at your premises the Fire Risk Assessment must be in a written format.

Fire Risk Assessments need to be reviewed regularly by a competent person – and whenever you make significant changes to the building or its purpose – to ensure they remain accurate. Having an accurate assessment also makes good business sense and maintains business continuity.

How we can help you

Environtec can provide you with a competent Fire Risk Assessor who will follow the methodology as laid out in PAS 79 to ensure your legal compliance.

Your assessment will be undertaken by an assessor who has completed an accredited Fire Risk Assessors Course. When they visit your premises, they will:

  • Survey and identify fire hazards and risks
  • Assess emergency escape routes and equipment
  • Identify people at risk
  • Record their findings
  • Recommend solutions in a detailed action plan, helping you to comply with current regulations

Each report will give consideration to the following:

  • Fire detection and warning systems
  • Firefighting equipment
  • Emergency routes and exits
  • The needs of vulnerable people (for example, the elderly, children or those with disabilities)
  • Safe storage or removal of dangerous substances
  • Fire safety training

We cover all industries and properties including (but not limited to) residential, offices, shops, factories, warehouses, HMOs (houses in multiple occupation), schools, funeral parlours, petrol stations, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and hotels.
