What are your legal responsibilities ?

There are in fact some legal responsibilities and obligations involved with fire safety and protection due to the serious nature of the subject. All businesses, organisations and non-domestic buildings are required to have a fire risk assessment done in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

This is for the main purpose of making sure buildings are both doing their best to prevent a fire but also to limit damage and worse should the situation arise. To coincide with the assessment, there must also be a specific ‘Responsible Person’ (RP) selected. This person takes control of getting the fire risk assessments booked in and maintained along with ensuring the necessary equipment and measures are in place too.

In the past we have carried out fire risk assessments for offices, warehouses, HMO’s, shops and everything in between too. There aren’t many types of building we haven’t worked on making us a brilliant versatile company to work with. 

We thought it might also be helpful to provide a little information on why you need to provide a fire risk assessment. In the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 it actually states that if you have more than five regular occupants in a building you must undertake a fully comprehensive fire risk assessment.

Understandably, this affects a lot of people so it’s important to know this fact as you don’t want to get in trouble. For recommendations on what you should do with your building, we would suggest getting in touch with us as soon as you can. We will have an open and honest discussion about our services and what would be best to ensure your building and the people within it are safe.

Fire Risk Assessments Huddersfield - Key Points

Here’s more detail on the five step approach we referred to a little earlier in this article. We want to provide as much information as we can so you feel clued up enough to understand the importance of taking fire safety and protection seriously. So, here we go.

Identify the fire hazards – Although some fire hazards are pretty obvious, there are also some not too easy signs to recognise. This is why it’s useful to have an experienced professional such as us make records of every single fire hazard in your building. Once you’re aware of all the issues that could crop up, we can build prevention plans that ultimately could save someone’s life. Examples of typical fire hazards that we see all the time are; pieces of equipment, machinery, chemicals, fluids, kitchen appliances and lots more. 

Identify people at risk – Once we’re aware of all the possible fire risks and hazards, we can identify the people who are closest to all of them. We’ll then put procedures and precautions in place to make people aware of what to do and what to be careful of.

Evaluate, remove and protect the risk – We kind of touched on this in the previous point but once you’re aware of the items, areas and people involved in potential risk, you can put plans in place. These plans are centred around how fire can be controlled or prevented as well as what to do in the event of a fire. To give examples we would produce a fire extinguisher plan, check service dates on machinery, look at fire compartmentation and lots more too.

Record, plan, inform and train (if required) – We produce records, notes and documents on every project we undertake because we not only want to share with you as the customer what we’ve been up to, but it also gives you something to refer back to should you need it. It may also act as evidence that you’ve actually had a fire risk assessment completed.

Review regularly – Following the completion of one fire risk assessment, it’s important to keep topping them up too. Buildings change for a number of different reasons over time so the potential fire risks will too. If you’re unsure about how often we’d recommend having a fire risk assessment then get in touch with us today as our Huddersfield team would be delighted to discuss.

Fire Risk Assessments Huddersfield - FAQs

In some cases, you may be able to conduct a fire risk assessment yourself if you have the necessary knowledge, competence, and understanding of fire safety regulations. However, it is often advisable to seek professional help from a competent fire risk assessor, just like our team at Absolute Health Fire Safety, especially for complex or high-risk buildings.

A fire risk assessment is essential for identifying potential fire hazards, evaluating their potential impact, and implementing appropriate control measures. It helps ensure the safety of occupants, protects property and assets, and ensures compliance with fire safety regulations.

A fire risk assessment should be reviewed regularly, and the frequency of reviews will depend on various factors such as changes in the building’s layout, occupancy, activities, or fire safety regulations. As a general guideline, a review should be conducted at least annually, but it may be required more frequently in certain circumstances.

Neglecting to adhere to fire risk assessment requirements can lead to severe ramifications. Non-compliance may result in legal penalties, enforcement measures, premises closure, heightened risk to occupants, and potential liability in the event of fire-related incidents.

The time required to conduct a fire risk assessment can differ based on various factors, including the building’s size, complexity, the number of hazards to assess, and the availability of information. For smaller premises with fewer complexities, the assessment may be completed within a few hours. However, larger or more intricate buildings may necessitate several days or even weeks to perform a thorough and comprehensive assessment.

At Absolute Health Fire Safety, we are immensely proud of the exceptional reputation we have established in West Yorkshire over the past decade or longer.

Our fire risk assessments in Huddersfield cover all angles including; the identification of fire hazards, assessment of the risk to people, evaluation of existing fire safety measures, and formulation of an emergency plan. As you would expect, our fire risk assessments are comprehensive and aim to ensure compliance whilst also maximising fire safety.

An emergency evacuation plan outlines the procedures to follow in the event of a fire. It ensures a safe and orderly evacuation of occupants from the building to designated assembly points. And of course, this will be covered in your fire risk assessment.

Risks are often prioritised based on the likelihood of a fire occurring and the potential consequences. This helps in focusing efforts on mitigating the most significant risks first. It’s only that once we identify the most prominent risks within your premises that we can then propose and implement the relevant measures in place.
