Fire Risk Assessments

Since 1st October 2006 the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order came into effect replacing existing Fire Legislation

Anyone who has some control over premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire. The regulations apply to all non-domestic premises

What do you need to do?

You must have a legally-designated "responsible person" who must arrange for a risk assessment, identify any possible fire risks and deal with them. Details of the duties are below.

Trafalgar Fire can provide a fire risk assessment and ensure you have everything you need to ensure the safety of anyone at your premises while being in line with legislation.

We have provided Fire Risk Assessments for small businesses, Metropolitan Police, Schools, Restaurants and many more commercial premises.

Duties of the "responsible person"

You must:

  • carry out a fire-risk assessment and identify possible dangers and risks
  • think about who might be particularly at risk - you may have disabled employees, or people who work with hazardous chemicals
  • get rid of the risk from fire, as far as reasonably possible
  • put in place fire precautions to deal with any risks that remain
  • make sure there is protection if you use or store flammable or explosive materials
  • have a plan to deal with emergencies
  • record your findings and review them as and when necessary

If you are the responsible person, you must make sure that the fire-risk assessment is carried out. You can appoint some other competent person to do the actual assessment, but you are still responsible in law.
