Fire Risk Assessment Service

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires all Employers, Duty Holders and those who are responsible for non-domestic, industrial, commercial and residential premises to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment of their premises and thereafter review on a regular basis or sooner if circumstances change.

Why Do You Need a Fire Risk Assessment?

The purpose of a Fire Risk Assessment is to assess the risk of fire within the premises and subsequently identify suitable control measures which when implemented primarily ‘Protect Life’ and secondarily ‘Protect Property’.

Therefore, it is a legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to have a Fire Risk Assessment which is deemed to be ‘suitable and sufficient’.

Fire Risk Assessments are extremely important for construction sites and other businesses. The reasons for having a Fire Risk Assessment are simple; to keep everyone on your site safe and protected from potential fire hazards.

Fire risk assessments allow for consultants to identify where potential fire hazards could lie and evaluate the current fire safety methods on your site that are already in place. Here at Watson & Watson, we can provide Fire Risk Assessment service across Leicester, Derby, Nottingham and the East Midlands.

Note: None compliance to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 may lead to employers/duty holders being served Alteration/Prohibition Notices and/or being Prosecuted.
