Fire Risk Assessments are important to your organisation for many reasons. UK Legislation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, England and Wales and The Scotland Fire Act 2005 are designed to make you as the employer, landlord or senior person on site, as well as your employees, legally responsible for the implementation and maintenance of fire legislation in your workplace.
The Fire Risk Assessment is the main starting point to determining whether your the workplace has all the necessary requirements to be compliant with the relevant Fire Regulations and any shortfalls are identified and rectified. The Fire Risk Assessment process can be carried out by a trained on-site expert or by an outside agency.
The on-site option allows for greater understanding of your setup, making it easier for them to suggest improvements. The outside agency option (external risk assessors) might appear to be the simplest option at first glance but can work out being more expensive. Quite often an external risk assessor can prove to be the least effective option when it comes to updating and maintaining your fire risk assessment.
