      FAQs

      What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

      A fire risk assessment is a thorough inspection and evaluation of premises and their use, aimed at identifying fire hazards, assessing the risk of those hazards causing harm, and determining the effectiveness of existing fire safety measures. It's used to ensure the safety of occupants by minimising the risk of fire.

      Who is Responsible for Conducting a Fire Risk Assessment?

      The responsibility for conducting a fire risk assessment typically falls on the 'responsible person' - this can be the employer, the owner of the premises, or the occupier in case of a workplace, or the building owner or manager in multi-occupied residential buildings. It's their duty to ensure the assessment is carried out competently.

      How Often Should a Fire Risk Assessment Be Conducted?

      A fire risk assessment should be reviewed regularly and updated whenever significant changes are made to the layout, the use of the premises, or the volume of people using it. As a general rule, it's advisable to review the assessment annually and conduct a new assessment every few years or after any significant changes or incidents.

      What Are the Key Elements of a Fire Risk Assessment?

      The key elements include identifying fire hazards (such as sources of ignition and fuel), determining who is at risk (focusing on vulnerable individuals), evaluating the risks and existing safety measures, recording the findings and implementing necessary improvements, and regularly reviewing and updating the assessment.

      What Happens if I Don't Conduct a Fire Risk Assessment?

      Failing to conduct a fire risk assessment, or conducting a poor assessment, can have serious consequences, including legal action, fines, or even imprisonment in extreme cases. Beyond legal ramifications, it places everyone in the building at a higher risk of harm in the event of a fire. Ensuring a thorough assessment is carried out is not only a legal requirement but a fundamental aspect of protecting lives and property.
