What are your legal responsibilities ?

Fire safety and protection carry some strong regulations and formal stipulations that must be followed by you as the business or organisation. Non-domestic properties are to legally have a fire risk assessment done in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

On top of this, there must also be a dedicated ‘responsible person’ (RP) within your organisation or business. This person arranges the fire risk assessments and ensures that certain measures are in place to combat fire hazards and fires themselves. We’ve carried out fire risk assessments for a number of different building types in the past including the likes of shops, offices, warehouses, care homes, HMO’s and more. The point here is that there isn’t much we haven’t seen and we’d be delighted to help you no matter what your circumstances are.

To add a little more detail regarding the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It states that if there are 5 or more regular occupants in a building, you must have a fully comprehensive fire risk assessment done.

This will apply to so many buildings so it’s important to keep on top of this. If you’re in need of a fire risk assessment then get in touch with us. Once we’ve completed your fire risk assessment we will provide a fully detailed report in writing, to show your compliance and our findings. There are actually no official timings on when you should get a fire risk assessment but we would recommend getting one done every two years. A lot can change in this time and you need to make sure your building is still safe and sound.

Fire Risk Assessments Bradford - Key Points

Identify the fire hazards – There are often lots of potential fire hazards that don’t get recognised or considered unless you’ve had the training to find them. Common examples in workplaces or organisations are bits of equipment and machinery, chemicals and lots more too.

Identify people at risk – Now you know what things are fire risks, you should identify the people who are most likely to be near them. It is so important to have awareness and an open line of communication about fire safety.

Evaluate, remove, reduce and protect from risk – Following identifying the risks and the people potentially involved, we can build a plan around mitigating risk and informing people what to do if certain situations were to arise.

Record, plan, inform and train (if required) – Make sure that all the information we provide from our fire risk assessment is stored safely. We will produce a document with our findings and information on there including plans and necessary activities.

Review regularly – Businesses and organisations change all the time so it’s important to review your fire risk assessment regularly. At these points you may also want to check in with us about fire safety and protection precautions you can take by using our services.

Fire Risk Assessments Bradford - FAQs

If you’re looking for fire risk assessments in Bradford or the surrounding areas, and your business has over 5 employees, it’s more or less guaranteed that we will be able to provide a dedicated fire risk assessment for your premises. Absolute Health Fire Safety is well-equipped to provide fire risk assessments for a multitude of sectors including healthcare, factories, care homes, hotels, offices, and schools.

It’s difficult to give a definitive answer to this question as there are multiple factors that need to be considered before we are able to provide an estimated timeframe on how long the fire risk assessment will take to complete. For example, an HMO risk assessment would take longer than a 5-employee office. However, the average fire risk assessment usually takes between 2-4 hours.

Fire risk assessments should be carried out by a competent fire risk assessor(s) that has sufficient training and accreditation. Fire risk assessments are the first step towards maximising fire safety and are therefore absolutely crucial. You are not compliant until you receive a certification of proof from a competent fire risk assessor.

No, fire risk assessments in Bradford are not required every year. However, they should be updated ”regularly” in line with any infrastructure changes within your premises. Further examples of where your assessment needs to be reviewed may include; when there are changes in legislation, and when there are significant changes in personnel and building alterations.

If you fail to comply with the latest regulations, you are highly likely to be prosecuted. Moreover, there is also a real possibility of 2-year imprisonment for the ”responsible person” within the business for neglect and failing to comply.

The ”responsible person” within your business is responsible for arranging the fire risk assessment for your premises. They are also responsible for reviewing the assessment regularly in line with any changes in legislation or within the premises itself.

Before Absolute Health Fire Safety can proceed with your comprehensive fire risk assessments, there is certain information that we’ll need to gather. Information may include building plans, occupancy details, fire safety equipment specifications, and details about the activities conducted within the premises.

It involves identifying fire hazards, assessing the risks, evaluating the effectiveness of existing fire safety measures, and developing an action plan to mitigate the identified risks. Essentially, a fire risk assessment starts with identifying all possible fire risk assessments. The aim, upon completion of your assessment, is to be proactive and put plans in place to eliminate or reduce all risks.

Regular inspections, testing, and maintenance schedules should be established for all fire safety equipment. These should be documented, and responsible personnel should be assigned to oversee these tasks.
