The Fire Risk Assessment is an important legal requirement under The Fire Safety Order 2005. The Responsible Person has a duty to ensure that the Risk Assessment is carried out, and actions are taken on works required in the Assessment. The Responsible Person is usually the employer, the person in control or owner of the building – or someone designated to the role.

A Fire Risk Assessment is very important in an organisation’s fire safety strategy. The starting point is to identify fire risks and safe escape in the event of a fire, and it provides fundamental information on all aspects of fire safety from the correct extinguishers to the right category of alarm and necessary signage.

Our engineers at Fireline have the expertise and accreditation to compile a Fire Risk Assessment for your organisation. All of our Fire Risk Assessors are qualified to the highest standards. We will supply your Fire Risk Assessment as an electronic document and also in hard copy format.

Your fire risk assessment is carried out according to PAS79 (Fire risk assessment – guidance and a recommended methodology). This PAS gives guidance and corresponding examples of documentation for undertaking, and recording the significant findings of, fire risk assessments in buildings and parts of buildings for which fire risk assessments are required by legislation - more specifically the "Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005" in England and Wales

You will receive an electronic and hard copy of your risk assessment, and our engineer will provide you with expert advice on any significant findings.
