Fire Risk Assessments

In the UK it is a legal requirement for a fire risk assessment to be carried out on almost all premises where people could be working.
This is under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales, the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 in Scotland and the Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 in Northern Ireland.
Under these regulations, the "responsible person" is legally obliged to ensure that the fire risk assessment is carried out and to deal with any problems that were highlighted during that assessment (although the relevant phrase is "duty holder" under the Scotland regulations and "appropriate person" under the Northern Ireland regulations).
The definition of the "responsible person" is typically the person who has primary responsibililty for a premises. This could include facilities managers, owners of premises and managers of buildings.
In multi-tenanted buildings, each tenant has to carry out a fire risk assessment of their premises, and coordinate it with the fire risk assessment that the landlord has carried out of their areas.
In blocks of flats, the fire risk assessment needs to cover the common areas (such as stairs and corridors) but not necessarily the individual flats.
There are a very wide range of levels of expertise for fire risk assessors. The most basic level will simply review your building against standard design codes, and recommend that you upgrade any parts of the building that do not comply. Whilst the fire risk assessment itself may be cheap, this approach can often result in major costs to upgrade buildings to current standards. However, a more experienced fire risk assessor will be able to make reasoned judgements on the level of risk presented by non-compliances and decide whether the risk is tolerable. Even if changes are needed, they may be able to recommend alternative, more cost effective solutions such as changes to management procedures.
PYRODEC fire risk assessors pride ourselves on having expertise of the highest standards, and are supported by the rest of the company who can provide expert advice on almost all aspects of fire safety when needed. By using PYRODEC, you are therefore sure that you will be given the best advice and receive the most cost effective solutions.
