Fire Safety Risk Assessments For Schools & Education

Not only is it a legal obligation to ensure that your school or educational establishment has a comprehensive fire risk assessment carried out but it’s also the right thing to do from an ethical standpoint to keep your students and staff safe.

From 2005, fire risk assessments were made a legal requirement for all schools and education establishments in line with the Fire Safety (Regulatory Reform) Order of 2005.

Any school that employs over 5 people (which is all schools) must ensure fire risk assessments are carried out and that the documents are updated regularly.

Fire Risk Assessment Reviews

How often should fire risk assessments be reviewed for your school? Although The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 doesn’t define a specific time period, there are critical guidelines that should be followed to ensure you are maximising the safety of all students, teachers, and visitors. 

For best practices, fire risk assessments should be reviewed at least every 2-3 years. Assessments may also be intermittently reviewed with documents updated when alterations are made to your building, when there has been a change of use in your premises, and other changes that could directly impact fire safety.

A typical fire risk assessment conducted by Absolute Health Fire Safety follows FIVE main areas. Firstly, we will identify all potential fire safety hazards. Secondly, we will identify the people most at risk of those identified hazards. Thirdly, we will then proceed to evaluate and remove/reduce the fire risk that it presents. Further steps then include recording, providing training if necessary, and reviewing on a regular basis.

Yes, of course. Once we have completed all stages of the fire risk assessment for your school, you will receive a comprehensive fire risk assessment report which will be full evidence to the authorities that you’ve had an assessment completed by an accredited fire risk assessment company.

This ultimately depends on a few variable factors such as the size of your school/establishment. However, a typical assessment will normally take anywhere between 2-3 hours from start to finish.
