Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 employers are legally obliged to undertake a fire risk assessment in their premises.
A fire risk assessment helps you identify all the fire hazards and risks in your premises and decide on suitable precautions for controlling the risks. As well as looking at the fire risks the process will look at the adequacy of your fire precautions and evacuation procedures.
Who should do the fire risk assessment? A competent person ie someone who has had sufficient training and experience and knowledge of fire safety engineering. Ideally the assessment should be undertaken by someone with recognised fire safety qualifications.
We at Complete Health & Safety can arrange for our qualified fire safety practitioner to undertake a fully compliant fire risk assessment at your premises. A detailed report together with pragmatic and cost effective recommendations will be forwarded after the visit.
The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) require employers to control the risks to safety from fire, explosions and substances corrosive to metals. Our fire safety consultant is qualified to undertake DSEAR assessments in SMEs, covering extraction systems, spraybooths, storage of flammable/combustible substances etc.
