Managing Fire Risk

Protecting people through compliant places and spaces

Every organisation that manages a commercial premises or property must have a fire risk assessment completed by a ‘competent person’ in order to comply with fire safety law.

Having robust fire safety management is not just about protecting your premises and its contents, it’s also about preventing fire from spreading to nearby premises.

Making sure that your employees and members of the public can quickly and safely escape from a building in the event of a fire is key to a great fire management strategy.

Your questions answered.

Why should I have a fire risk assessment?2021-11-20T18:17:57+00:00

First and foremost, if you employ five or more employees, it is your legal responsibility to arrange a fire risk assessment. However, fire risk assessments are also very beneficial, helping you identify any flaws in your emergency detection and evacuation procedures. This will assist you in keeping your employees and members of the public visiting your premises safe.

When do I need a fire risk assessment?2021-11-20T18:17:46+00:00

Depending on the size and type of business you operate, you may need to organise a fire risk assessment annually. However, if you have altered your premises, changed the contents or layout of the building, changed your fire risk precautions, or simply suspect your previous fire assessment is no longer valid, you must take a new fire risk assessment.

What happens in a fire risk assessment?2021-11-20T18:17:35+00:00

During a fire risk assessment, an Optimum Safety assessor will thoroughly investigate your premises, taking note of the condition of the building and identify potential fire hazards and escape routes. If you have already had a fire risk assessment or have procedures in place, the assessor will also review your current fire prevention and management tactics and make sure these are still fit for purpose.
