A Fire Risk Assessment is a systematic and structured assessment of the fire risk in the building in question. This is completed for the purpose of expressing the current level of fire risk, determining the adequacy of existing fire precautions and determining the need for, and nature of, any additional fire precautions.
The reasons for having a Fire Risk Assessment fall into three main categories as described below:
1.Legal – To meet your legal obligation under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
2.Moral – To reduce the risk of a fire so far as is reasonably practicable therefore providing protection to all concerned.
3.Business Protection – To ensure that you reduce the likelihood of a fire occurring and the impact this would have on your business/premises should this occur.
