Fire Risk Assessments

All non-domestic premises are required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (2005) to carry out fire risk assessments. Failure to comply with this regulation can result in severe penalties.

If you require a fire risk assessment in London or elsewhere in the UK, Phoenix Health & Safety can help. Our highly experienced health and safety experts can carry out fire safety risk assessments on your behalf or can assist you by providing assessment forms, examples or additional support.

Approach to Fire Risk Assessment

In order to effectively perform a fire risk assessment, you must follow the five steps outlined below. You must:

  • Identify fire hazards
  • Identify who is at risk
  • Evaluate the risk and decide whether existing precautions are adequate
  • Record the findings
  • Review as and when necessary

To identify hazards, you should focus on the three components of the fire triangle: fuel sources (furniture, paper and liquids), heat sources (electrical appliances, heating equipment and lighting) and oxygen sources (ventilation systems, open doors and windows).  Fire prevention ultimately relies on keeping these three components separated at all times.

Phoenix Health & Safety provide unrivalled consultancy services. We ensure that all fire risk assessments are conducted by specialist fire risk assessors with a high level of knowledge and competency. All final reports produced are highly professional and fully compliant with legislation.

We also provide an in-house Fire Risk Assessment training course.
