Do you have a Fire Risk Assessment; do you need a Fire Risk Assessment? UK fire safety legislation requires that all buildings used in commercial or similar type activities, but not those that are solely domestic, are required to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment for the purpose of life safety protection and to keep the Fire Risk Assessment up to date (Reviewed). Research estimates that there are hundreds of thousands of non-domestic premises that are breaking the law, risking fines, potentially invalidating their insurance, endangering the safety of workers and the general public by not having conducted a Fire Risk Assessment. A responsible person of a premise/organisation has a legal responsibility to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment ......... fire knows no boundaries. Further Information in to why you may require a Fire Risk Assessment: What is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005? The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 replaces most fire safety legislation with one simple order. It means that any person who has some level of control in premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire. Where does the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 apply? The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to virtually all premises and covers nearly every type of building, structure and open space. For example it applies to: offices and shops factories and warehouses pubs, clubs and restaurants tents and marquees schools and sports centres places of worship hotels, hostels and B&B’s community halls and other community premises premises that provide care, including care homes and hospitals the shared areas of properties several households live in (housing laws may also apply)
