What are your legal responsibilities ?

As with most important things, there are some legal points that must be abided by for fire safety. Businesses, organisations and non-domestic properties are actually obliged to have a fire risk assessment done in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. In addition to this, there must also be a ‘responsible person (RP) within the team that looks after fire risk assessments specifically. It’s an important job because you are essentially responsible for making sure people have all the necessary equipment and the operating space is safe from fire risks. We’ve worked in a multitude of different industries so have seen the small nuances and changes that are applicable to certain ones. Generally though, there’s regulations that account for all types of organisation. Whether you’re a shop, office, warehouse, HMO or anything in between, fire risk assessments matter.

Here’s a little bit more information on why you need to provide a fire risk assessment. It is stated in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 that you must have a fully comprehensive fire risk assessment if there are more than five regular occupants in a building. For lots of businesses and organisations, this is the case. For this reason alone, it’s probably a good idea to get in touch with us as we will provide you with all the assessment information and documentation you need to be abiding by the law. After the assessment is complete we will give you a full report of what we’ve undertaken and our findings. This is written proof of your compliance with details of what might need to be done. We recommend  having a fire risk assessment done at least once every 3 years.

Fire Risk Assessments Halifax - Key Points

Identify the fire hazards – Sometimes, without a specialist taking a look, there can be some fire hazards that aren’t necessarily obvious to the naked eye. Identifying all potential fire hazards is extremely important though because if you’re aware of them you’ll be able to build plans around dealing with them. Common examples of fire hazards that we see every week are; pieces of equipment, machinery, chemicals, fluids, kitchen appliances and lots more too.

Identify people at risk – As soon as you know where the fire risks and hazards are, you can identify actual people who may be more at risk or closest to them.

Evaluate, remove and protect from risk – The step after finding out what the fire risks are and who it may affect specifically, is to then build plans around safeguarding a building. We can put various safety precautions in such as fire extinguishers, checking service dates on machinery, adding fire compartmentation and lots more too.

Record, plan, inform and train (if required) – Every piece of work we undertake is noted and recorded for future purposes. We need all the relevant information in one place so we can refer back to it and so that you also have a copy of it stored away. This demonstrates that you’re doing something about your fire safety and protection.

Review regularly – Now, just because you’ve been through the cycle once doesn’t mean you’re done there. Fire risk assessments are to be done regularly and we should be called in for reviews and various other levels of support on a frequent basis. Unsure what a regular basis looks like? Give us a call on 0113 418 2911 and chat to a member of our Halifax team.
