Fire Risk Assessments – Whose Responsibility?

Fire safety legislation, codes of practice, British and European Standards can be a struggle for a person already faced with numerous other tasks and references.

Wrongly applied, money can be wasted and standards not achieved. Also, you may not need to do as much as you think!

Fire Risk Assessments carried out in CornwallIt is your responsibility to ensure your business/premises meets Fire Safety criteria set by government legislation. You may be penalised if you do not have correct procedures and documentation in place.

The Government has published a series of documents, divided by sectors to assist you to carry out basic fire risk assessments for your premises.
“If you read the guide and decide that you are unable to apply the guidance, then you should seek expert advice from a competent person. More complex premises will probably need to be assessed by a person who has comprehensive training or experience in fire risk assessment”.

We can help by carrying out a dedicated fire risk assessment on your behalf, and providing a report and table of management actions for you to follow to satisfy your regulatory responsibilities. Chough will perform the whole process from the initial assessment, recommendations for improvements, through to periodic reviews.

All of our assessors are qualified and are experienced in carrying out complex fire risk assessments in a wide range of premises. The aim of our fire risk assessments is not merely to comply with all the requirements of the Fire Safety Order 2005; our assessments aim to encourage continuous improvements in the management of fire safety throughout the organisation.
