Fire Risk Assessment Manchester

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, 2005, effective from 1st of October 2006, applies to all workplace premises in England and Wales and replaces or amends all previous fire regulations and laws - fire certificates are now a thing of the past and will need to be replaced with an up to date fire risk assessment.

It requires that:

  • The Responsible person at any premise must have a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment carried out by a competent person*
  • Appropriate risk based fire training must also be carried out on a regular basis, again by a competent person*
  • The definition of competent is where a person has had sufficient training and or knowledge and other qualities to carry out that role

What is a fire risk assessment?

A fire risk assessment evaluates your premises in terms of fire safety hazards (to people and property). It also provides clear guidance including a prioritised action plan on how to minimise the risks.

How long does a fire risk assessment take?

The site visit is usually completed within a day. Once completed, you will be provided with an easy to understand report and a full briefing as part of the service. Who does the assessment? Our fire risk assessors are fully qualified by the British Safety Council with a minimum of 7 years experience in the Fire Alarm Industry.

Why can't I do the fire risk assessment myself?

You can, if you have the time and expertise to do it. Beware that for an untrained person a fire risk assessment can be time consuming and might not meet the legal requirements. You may want to consider leaving it to the professionals. We provide fire risk assessment in Manchester and further afield.

What Fire Safety Training will we need?

Your assessment will determine the level of fire safety training needed for your staff. This may range from issuing booklets or using videos to undergoing a tailored fire safety course. Whatever is recommended we will ensure that your company complies with the training requirements under fire safety legislation. For a free quote please call us on 01457 833 065.
