    As a business owner, you have several responsibilities when it comes to fire safety, with a fire risk assessment being an important part of any active fire protection plan. Needing to protect your staff members, visitors, equipment and your place of work, taking fire safety responsibilities seriously is a must.

    Where businesses will have their own set of risks and requirements, all businesses need to conduct fire risk assessments.

    This is a legal requirement for any business or premises that the public has access to and must be carried out regularly.

    What is
    a fire risk assessment?

    A fire risk assessment is an evaluation that uncovers the level of risk a premises faces. By conducting a fire risk assessment, an assessor will be able to determine areas for concern, the likelihood of a fire breaking out as well as the individuals most at risk. A fire risk assessment will also highlight any missing equipment and faulty equipment in a business’ fire safety setup. Once the risk assessment has been completed, you will receive a fire risk assessment certificate.

    Frequently asked questions

    Who is responsible for carrying out fire risk assessments in your business?2021-02-19T14:10:11+00:00

    Each business is legally required to appoint a ‘Responsible Person’. This is someone who will take on the business’ fire safety duties. While this can be anyone within the business, it is generally an individual or individuals with control of the premises such as the employer, the owner, the landlord, an occupier, a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor.

    However, over 80% of businesses in Wales outsource this responsibility, appointing fire safety businesses like us to keep up with assessments and ensure the business is operating in a safe, compliant manner.

    Are fire risk assessments a legal obligation?2021-02-19T14:40:22+00:00

    A fire risk assessment is a legal requirement and if not adhered to can result in unlimited fines and in extreme cases, imprisonment.

    The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order requires a Responsible Person of any non-domestic premises to carry out a fire risk assessment.

    If five or more people work at the premises, a written record of the assessment and its findings will need to be stored and shown to the Fire Officer if ever they request it.

    How often are fire risk assessments required?2021-02-19T14:41:18+00:00

    Every business, no matter how big or small, must conduct fire risk assessments regularly. Here at Twenty4 Fire and Security, we advise that our customers complete a full assessment at least once a year. However, if you have made structural changes to a business premises or have changed the nature of the work carried out there, a fresh fire risk assessment is required to be completed by law.

    How much is a fire risk assessment in Cardiff?2021-02-19T14:42:14+00:00

    Fire risk assessments start from just £99 + VAT. However, at Twenty4 Fire and Security, we quote on a job-by-job basis, creating tailored plans to ensure each business we work with is getting the fire safety service and advice it needs. This can be paid in full before the assessment takes place or can be included in your SmartPlan.

    My Boss wants me to carry out a fire risk assessment, what should I do?2021-02-19T14:43:04+00:00

    This is very common, like a lot of business owners they are likely to be very busy and the responsibility of having to conduct a fire risk assessment is no easy task. Where do they start? The easy option is to “pass the buck” to a manager or member of staff.

    WARNING – The following information should be considered very carefully by you and your boss.

    The Law states you can conduct your own fire risk assessment if you have the expertise to do so. That’s the issue, very few people have the expertise to conduct a fire risk assessment. You would need to have a good understanding of a number of LAW’s and British standards. Below are just a few:

    1. The fire safety order
    2. BS 5839 – for fire detection and warning systems
    3. BS 5266 – for emergency lighting
    4. BS 8214 – for fire resisting doors
    5. BS 5306 – for fire extinguishers

    Carrying out a fire risk assessment when you do not have the expertise to do so, in any type of premises does not only put people’s lives at risk but if a fire were to start you could also be liable for large fines or even a prison sentence. As a company boss or owner of the property, it is their responsibility to appoint a competent person to conduct the assessment.

    What other fire safety measures should I take?2022-09-07T06:11:26+01:00

    As well as a valid fire risk assessment, there are many other fire safety measures your business will need to take by law. These may include additional fire extinguishers, fire alarms and more. The fire safety system you require will be outlined by a qualified fire risk assessor.
