Fire Risk Assessment
Controlling fire risks is an important part of managing a property. In order to be able to protect against the risks of fire, the first step is to identify these risks and this is where the fire risk assessment comes in. A legal demand for all ‘non-domestic’ premises, fire risk assessments (or FRAs) are a snapshot of how protected any given property is to ensure the safety of its occupants in the event of a fire. The FRA also identifies corrective actions and further steps to achieve an appropriate level of fire safety
  • Do you have a written fire risk assessment in place?
  • Do you have fire procedures in place?
  • Do you have emergency lighting? 
  • Do you have emergency routes indicated by signs?
  • Do you have the means to raise the alarm?
  • Do you have the means to fight a small fire?
  • Is all of your equipment maintained and up to date?
  • Have all of your staff had some fire training?
  • Have you reviewed your fire safety arrangements lately?
All employers or controllers of buildings should carry out a fire risk assessment. If there are 5 or more employees then this risk assessment should be written down. 
 
It is not illegal in any way to carry out the risk assessment yourself. Elsewhere on the internet there are many different formats on which you can record the findings.
