Fire Safety Risk Assessments

In order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is necessary to complete a specific fire-related risk assessment. The fire risk assessment takes into consideration all employees and any other persons who may be affected by a fire within the workplace and surrounding areas. The assessment must be documented when more than five people are employed in the workplace.

Walker Health & Safety Services can carry out a fire risk assessment and will check that principles of prevention have been applied.

 

The principles of a Fire Risk Assessment are:

  1. Avoiding risks.
  2. Evaluating the risks which cannot be avoided.
  3. Combating the risks at source.
  4. Adapting to technical progress.
  5. Replacing the dangerous by the non-dangerous or less dangerous.
  6. Developing a coherent overall prevention policy that covers technology, organisation of work, and the influence of factors relating to the working environment.
  7. Giving collective protective measures priority over individual protective measures.
  8. Giving appropriate instructions to employees.

Failure to compile a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment may result in the local fire authority taking enforcement action on employers or owners of premises. Walker Health & Safety Services will assist the organisation in compiling the fire risk assessment. We will provide guidance and advice to guarantee your compliance with the legislation.

    We have been working with Emma for many years and her knowledge on all H&S matters has far outreached our expectation. Knowledgeable, friendly, and totally approachable, she is a complete pleasure to work with. When approached with a request for advice, Emma if not already aware the answer will investigate and provide a timely and clear solution to the problem, having the ability to think one step further for any further consequences. Having Emma as part of our external team has not only improved my personal H&S awareness but made our organisation a safe working environment for all members of staff. Thank you for the great service.

    Having recently started working with Emma personally, she has been very helpful and supportive. I look forward to working with her in the future.

    We have recently moved our business from two smaller sites into one larger site and our health and safety policies and procedures required an overhaul and updating. I reached out to Emma at Walker Health and Safety Services and from the first phone call we hit it off. The initial contact was relaxed and supportive. Emma has been a great advocate for health and safety and the importance of it. We always look forward to a visit from Emma and Health and Safety visits are no longer a dreaded part of the business. I would highly recommend Walker Health and Safety Services to anyone who is looking for a fresh look at health and safety.

    Great Service from Emma! I telephoned with a simple question, and she went above and beyond to update our Health and Safety Policy. Emma gave up some of her weekends to finish the policy. First-class service from Walker Health and Safety Services. Emma was very friendly and professional, as always.
