Fire Risk Assessments are a legal requirement in the UK for anyone who manages or owns a property or business. A qualified and experienced assessor carries out fire assessments by inspecting potential hazards and risks, ultimately reducing the risk of death and ensuring public safety.
If you want to understand more about the fire risk assessment procedure, we’ll discuss everything you need to know to keep lives protected in your premises, in line with legal regulations.
Fire Risk Assessments for businesses in Birmingham
If you are a manager, employer, landlord or property manager and fall into the following categories, you are legally required to conduct a fire risk assessment:
- Multi-residential property ie houses of multi-occupation (HMO)or block of flats
- Commercial property
You will need a competent person to conduct the inspection. You may need to hire a qualified fire risk assessor if you don’t have anyone with sufficient knowledge within your organisation.
A responsible person must ensure fire risk assessments are reviewed regularly to assess if they are up-to-date and relevant, for example, if there has been a change to the number of occupants.
A new, full assessment should be carried out regularly. This is to ensure fire safety measures are in place, such as proper escape routes and action plans, to reduce the risk level or potential fire hazards.
