What are your legal responsibilities ?

Fire risk assessments are a legal requirement for anyone who is responsible for a building and therefore other people too.

Employers, landlords and any other building that isn’t a single dwelling will require a fire risk assessment, completed by a competent company. This is in line with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and quite frankly, should be done by everyone anyway.

There’s also several points within this legislation which are important to understand. For example, each building requires a ‘Responsible Person’ (RP) who is in charge of various fire related jobs and tasks, one of which is to ensure the fire risk assessment is completed and updated. 

We thought it might be useful to provide a little more information on the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to provide some more context.

Under this regulation, a comprehensive fire risk assessment must be completed if there are five or more regular occupants of a building. This means most businesses and organisations are affected for example, stores, cinemas, leisure centres, offices, warehouses, HMO’s and everything in between too.

You’ll more than likely fall into one of these categories in which case it might be a good idea to get in touch with our team in Barnsley. We’re also happy to provide more information on the regulations or fire risk assessments in general. 

Once you deem it necessary to get a fire risk assessment completed by us, we will provide you with the documentation you need to use as proof that an assessment has taken place. We’ll give a full report with lots of written information to accompany it. 

Fire Risk Assessments Barnsley - Key Points

Here is our five step approach to fire risk assessments in Barnsley in more detail.

Identify the fire hazards – Before making any plans in relation to fire hazards, you need to find what they are and where they are. Some are a lot more obvious to the naked eye than others but in our experience we’ve found that there are always little hidden ones that aren’t so obvious. Once we’ve done a full identification process we create plans.

Identify people at risk – Before any action is taken, we need to know who’s at potential risk in those identified areas. Common areas of fire hazards that we see every week are; pieces of equipment, machinery, chemicals, fluids, kitchen appliances and lots more too. This also happens to be where lots of people are so when we know who’s at risk, we can build plans around that. 

Evaluate, remove and protect – This is where the action happens because we’ve already found out what the potential problems are and who is most likely concerned by them. Now we can put things in place to make the building safer from fire. Examples of implementations could be more fire extinguishers, better fire compartmentation, higher spec fire doors and more.

Record, plan, inform and train (if required) – We document every part of what we do for two reasons. The first is so you have proof that we’ve visited and undertaken the necessary works and the second reason is so you have something to refer back to know exactly what we’ve done. We also provide training if this is relevant to your people.

Review regularly – This is pretty straight forward, it means you essentially need to review your fire safety regularly. When we do our initial fire risk assessment we will provide some information on what to look our for on a regular basis. We advise checking in with us yearly but getting an assessment done every 3 years.
