    Get it right first time with Kentlincs!

    A fire risk assessment is the essence of your business fire safety policies under the regulatory reform order (Fire Safety) 2005. We can make it straightforward and economical for you to comply.

    Get it right 1st time! A professional assessment pays for its-self many times over. Lesser qualified or inexperienced assessors often subscribe the costly work that may be required to bring your premises up to acceptable fire safety standards.

    Occupiers of commercial property have a legal obligation to complete a competent fire risk assessment. Competence can be defined as the assessor having suitable fire risk assessment knowledge or fire engineering qualifications, experience and in depth knowledge of many British Standards and other regulations applicable to fire safety in commercial buildings.

    A Fire Assessment is a legal requirement!

     It is your duty to identify fire risks and hazards in your premises and take appropriate action. In addition, if five or more people work at your premises or your business has a licence under enactment in force, you’ll need your fire risk assessment to be a written record.

    Who's responsible?

    The owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises is responsible for the fire safety and is referred to as the ‘responsible person‘. This person must carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and make sure it is reviewed regularly, tell any staff about any identified risks, put in place (and keep maintained) appropriate fire safety measures, and provide staff with any necessary fire safety training.

    Whilst it is possible to perform a fire risk assessment yourself, people often find it easier to employ a specialist to do it for them. The ‘responsible person‘ will need to appoint a ‘competent person‘ to help. This is particularly a good idea if you feel you don’t have the required expertise or time to do the fire risk assessment yourself.

    What are the objectives of a fire risk assessment?

    During our assessment we will identify the various fire hazards, sources of ignition and any people put at risk. We determine what safety measures are necessary to reduce the probability of a fire starting, ensure all building occupants are alerted and can safely leave the premises in the event of a fire and how to limit the effects of a fire should one occur. We then create an action plan and advise you on how to reduce the risk of those hazards.

    We help you document and plan emergency routes and exits, decide upon any fire fighting equipment required or in need of maintenance (such as extinguishers and fire blankets), and then can arrange for the removal or safe storage of any dangerous substances.

    What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

    A fire risk assessment is exactly what is states to be – an identification of all the fire hazards and risks in your premises. You can then decide whether any of the risks identified are acceptable or whether something needs to be done to reduce, control or eliminate the risks altogether.

    Why should you get a Fire Risk Assessment?

    It’s now a legal requirement for all employers to undertake a Fire Risk Assessment.

    From 1st October 2006 the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force and applies across England and Wales.  The Order requires individuals within an organisation who are responsible for commercial buildings to perform a mandatory fire risk assessment to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire and hazards within the premises.
