Fire risk assesment


Fire Risk Assessments are a legal requirement and this responsibility usually lies with the employer or landlord. Porter Fire will ensure you remain compliant.

Fire Risk Assessments are a legal requirement according to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

A fire risk assessment involves considering the risk of a fire breaking out in the building, and the possible effects on the people inside. This risk should be reduced to as low as possible by ensuring there are suitable means for detecting a fire and sufficient systems for tackling and containing the fire. Emergency escape routes and safety signs should be provided and measures taken to ensure routes remain clear.

Once a fire risk assessment is in place, the Chief Fire Officers’ Association suggest annual reviews are good practice in order to keep the fire risk assessment up to date.

Further Information

Choosing a Fire Risk Assessor
As a vital part of any organisation’s fire safety system, it is paramount that the fire risk assessment is completed by someone with the correct expertise. Identified risks and hazards require rectification and improvements in order to be compliant.

Most Fire and Rescue services recommend selecting a fire risk assessor registered with a fire industry professional body. Porter Fire can provide you with a fully qualified and highly experienced fire risk assessor – all of our assessors are members of the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE). This means you can have peace of mind that your organisation is in safe hands – the risk of fire will be correctly identified, minimised and a plan put in place.
