What are your legal responsibilities ?

All non-domestic properties are legally obligated to have a fire risk assessment undertaken in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It is the duty of the responsible person (RP) to arrange the fire risk assessment and ensure that the safety of the people operating within the premises are safe and well-protected. Here at Absolute Health Fire Safety, we provide fire risk assessments for warehouses, offices, shops, social housing, care homes, HMO’s (houses in multiple occupation), schools, hotels, guesthouses, and many other types of commercial and non-domestic premises.

In line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, you must have a comprehensive fire risk assessment undertaken if there are at 5 or more regular occupants in the building. Upon completion of the assessment, Absolute Health Fire Safety will also provide you with our findings in writing for proof of full compliance.

It’s also important to note that if there are any changes within the premises, this should also be reflected in updating the fire risk assessment meaning that the document should be regularly reviewed in line with these changes.

Failure to comply with legislations set out by the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 can lead to hefty prosecutions and in the worst possible case, serious injuries or fatalities in the event of a fire. Fire risk assessments should be professionally reviewed every 5 years at a minimum but constantly updated in line with any changes by the Responsible Person.

Fire Risk Assessments Leeds - FAQs

A fire risk assessment in Leeds 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. Although there are no regulations around annual reviews, we highly recommend it for best practices and maximum fire safety.

Failure to comply with fire risk assessment requirements can have serious consequences. It may result in legal penalties, enforcement action, closure of premises, increased risk to occupants, and potential liability in case of fire-related incidents. It’s always best to avoid all risk and get a fire risk assessment in Leeds booked with Absolute Health Fire Safety.

The duration of a fire risk assessment can vary depending on factors such as the size and complexity of the building, the number of hazards to evaluate, and the availability of information. Simple assessments for smaller premises may take a few hours, while more extensive assessments for larger or complex buildings may require several days or even weeks to complete. However, we’ll keep you informed from start to finish so that non questions are left unanswered.

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. It’s no overstatement to say that a fire risk assessment can help to save lives!

Every business should have an appointed ”responsible person” who is responsible for arranging the fire fire risk assessment, as well as any further reviews. Following the assessment, there will be steps laid out to minimise chances of a fire breakout. Here, the responsible person of the business will also be responsible for ensuring that the steps get followed without compromise.

If a significant fire risk is identified during your fire risk assessment, immediate action should be taken to mitigate or eradicate the fire risk(s). This may involve implementing interim measures while long-term solutions are planned and implemented. This will be prioritised to maximise fire safety for all.

There are a number of measures that can be taken to mitigate fire risks that have been identified. Mitigation measures can include; installing or replacing fire extinguishers, installing emergency lighting, and implementing procedures for evacuation and fire drills.

Upon completion of your fire risk assessment, you’ll receive a comprehensive fire risk assessment report. FRA reports outline the findings, evaluations, and recommendations resulting from the assessment process. The specific content may vary based on the size and complexity of the premises. However, a typical fire risk assessment report generally includes the following elements; executive summary, scope of the assessment, risk evaluation, recommendations, and more.
