What is a Fire Risk Assessment and do you need one?
All business premises and every block of flats must have a Fire Risk Assessment by law, yet not everyone understands this important fire safety measure.
We are often asked the question ‘what is a Fire Risk Assessment?’. The fact is, your Fire Risk Assessment should be the cornerstone of your fire safety plans for your specific building.
Unfortunately Fire Risk Assessments are often overlooked, which can lead to buildings being exposed unnecessarily to fire risk, sometimes with the potential for loss of life.
You can read more about Fire Risk Assessments below, or otherwise please get in touch with our expert team if you would like to discuss the specific requirements for your building.
So, what is a Fire Risk Assessment?
At the most basic level, it is a review taken of a building to assess it for fire risk, and to provide recommendations to make it safer if need be.
A Fire Risk Assessment does not have to be written down if there are fewer than 5 regular occupants in a building, so a Fire Risk Assessment is not necessarily a document.
However, we would always recommend having a Fire Risk Assessment written down, as this is the simplest way to communicate the findings and to make sure that the recommendations have been carried out.
The Xcell Team would be very interested in working with you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
