    The Significance of Fire Risk Assessments
    A fire risk assessment is undertaken to ensure businesses comply with The Fire Safety Order 2005. Having a fire risk assessment in place is a legal requirement for almost all businesses in the UK. A fire risk assessment is the systematic look at potential sources of fire in the workplace, the dangers that it poses to those who use the workplace and how the risk and spread of fire can be minimised.

    What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
    A fire risk assessment is a means determining the likelihood of a fire occurring in the workplace. This is achieved by examining the factors in your work activities and work areas that could cause harm. From the assessment, precautions can be determined to ensure that fire hazards are reduced to prevent fire from occurring.

    A Fire Risk Assessment can be broken down into four steps to simplify the process:

     

    • Identify: Refers to recognizing the fire hazards and the people who are at risk. Hazards could include the following sources of ignition, naked flames, heaters, fuel, display materials, textiles or overstocked products.
    • Evaluate: Includes assessing the risk of a fire starting, the risk to people from fire, removing or reducing fire hazards and risks to people from a fire, and protecting people by providing fire precautions.
    • Record: Involves documenting the record of any significant findings and actions you have taken.
    • Review: Includes evaluating the fire risk assessment regularly and make changes where necessary in essential.
    What are the Fire Regulations?
    The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 replaces previous fire safety legislation. In 2006 the new Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force, from having a fire certificate issued by the City Fire and Rescue Authority to having a ‘Fire Risk Assessment’ (F.R.A.). Until October 1st 2006 there were over 70 pieces of UK fire Regulations which included the Fire Precautions Act 1971 (FPA 1971) and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 as amended. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is now in force, which will amend and consolidate those pieces of UK Fire Regulations / legislation relating to fire safety.
