Fire Risk Assessments Harrogate - Key Points

Here’s the five step approach to fire risk assessments in Harrogate.

Identify the fire hazards – Before doing anything else, you need to analyse and identify the actual hazards that could cause fire risks.  Some hazards are very obvious but others are more difficult to know about which is why it’s important to have an experienced professional do a risk assessment for you.

Identify the people at risk – Once you know what the hazards and dangers are you can begin to let the people who are closest to those problems know that they exist and what to do to avoid them or what to do if an emergency happens. In the best case we will seek to eliminate the fire risk. Some common areas of fire hazards that we see every week are; pieces of equipment, machinery, chemicals, fluids, kitchen appliances and others.

Evaluate, remove and protect from risk – Now it’s time to put things into place and make the building a safer space. Some quick examples of what we may do are add more fire extinguishers, place higher specification fire doors in and more. This part will of course vary depending on the building we’re working on.

Record, plan, inform and train (if required) – Here, we will record our findings, plan future work or further assessment, inform you clearly on action taken and provide any training that might be necessary. It’s important for us to document everything so that you have written evidence that you’ve had a fire risk assessment completed for proof to the local authorities.

Review regularly – Following our first visit, it’s important to keep on top of your fire safety and protection which is why we recommend you set up a routine visit with us at least once annually.

Fire Risk Assessments Harrogate – FAQs

Fire risk assessments are essential for identifying and mitigating fire hazards, complying with legal requirements, protecting lives and property, and reducing liability. It is an essential step in ensuring fire safety in various settings.

After a fire risk assessment is completed by Absolute Health Fire Safety, several important steps will follow to ensure the safety of people and property and to comply with legal requirements. This may include risk evaluation, recommendations, actions plans, and further training.

A fire risk assessment report is a crucial document that summarises the findings of the assessment and provides recommendations for addressing identified fire hazards. Key elements within our reports will include; fire hazards identified, prioritisation, description of your property, and much more.

Using a professional and accredited fire risk assessment company, just like AHFS, is always recommended. Our assessors are trained to identify fire hazards and assess their risks accurately. If you or your team lack the necessary knowledge and qualifications, it’s always safer and more effective to hire a professional company.

Neglecting a fire risk assessment can have serious consequences, both legally and in terms of safety. Fire safety is a critical aspect of property management and responsible ownership, and neglecting it can have far-reaching and devastating consequences. 

The responsibility for arranging a fire risk assessment typically falls on the property owner or, in the case of certain commercial or public properties, the responsible person or manager of the premises.

Although there is no specific time period on the frequency that a fire risk assessment should be conducted, it should be regularly updated and reviewed in line with internal changes. For example if there are any structural changes such as extensions or alterations, assessments should be conducted. Absolute Health Fire Safety will be able to assist you with regular fire risk assessment reviews for your premises in Harrogate.

There are a number of measures that can be taken to mitigate fire risks. Fire risk assessments will identify those key risks and then outline key measures that need to be put in place. Common measures include; fire extinguisher installation or replacement, emergency lighting, and implementing procedures for evacuation and fire drills.

Upon the completion of your fire risk assessment from Absolute Health Fire Safety, you’ll receive a well-documented and written report. Any necessary findings, actions and improvements will all be outlined in your comprehensive report.
