what does a fire safety assessment involve?

The assessment aims to provide you with a suitable plan for fire risk management. We recommend that Risk Assessments are carried out at a minimum of every three years, however you should always review your Risk Assessment following any significant change to your building. This could include changes to its layout, the people accessing the building on a regular basis or the introduction of new equipment or technology.

  • Recognise the fire hazards
  • Identify the people at risk (your staff and members of the public)
  • Assess, remove and take measures to minimise the recognised risks
  • Record the findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training for your staff
  • Review and update the building Fire Risk Assessment regularly
