The majority of UK workplaces are required to carry out fire risk assessments by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations. A Fire Risk Assessment helps determine the potential of a fire occurring and the effects on employees, visitors and neighbouring premises should the worst occur. Fires pose a very real risk to all business types across each and every workplace. Although people don’t like to discuss this, it’s important to consider arson as a part of your assessment. Allow us to talk you through this.
As you would expect, the main emphasis of fire regulations is to protect lives and a fire risk assessment fully covers this. However, it’s important for companies to understand that fires cost money. Costs of a serious fire could potentially be extremely high and this needs to be factored into a business. Unfortunately, many companies fail to reopen following a serious fire. At PUWER, we don’t want you in this situation.
You may have a previous fire certificate that covered your premises. This needs to be carried out regularly however. A fresh, new fire risk assessment will identify any further precautions required. If not much has altered within a company then the chances are you will be given a clean bill of health. Should various changes have been made, it could well require updating. Let us do this for you.
