Fire Risk Assessment

A fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical look at your premises, the activities carried on there and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.

Article 9 of the Order requires the responsible person to carry out a “suitable and sufficient” assessment of the risks on the premises.

What form the assessment takes will be dependent on the type and size of premises or undertaking concerned. What is suitable and sufficient for one premises will not be sufficient for another.

It will be for enforcing authorities to determine whether they consider that the risk assessment is suitable and sufficient, taking into account such factors as the nature of the building and the type of undertaking.

In each case the determining factor is likely to be whether fire hazards have been reasonably identified, risk reduction and mitigation carried out and residual risk appropriate protection measures (including management arrangements) implemented or proposed.
