Fire Risk Assessments

Did you know that having a Fire Risk Assessment in place for commercial properties is a legal requirement for all businesses in the UK? If your business in Swindon or the South West does not have one then you are likely to forfeit your insurance policy and put yourself at risk of not complying with H&S law for the occupants of that building.


Why do I need a Fire Risk Assessment 

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) came into effect in October 2006 replacing redundant fire safety law. The FSO applies to all commercial premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). This piece of legislation makes it your duty to have a suitable fire risk assessment if you are:

  • Responsible for business premises.
  • An employer or self-employed with business premises.
  • Responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes.
  • A charity or voluntary organisation.
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises.
  • Providing accommodation for paying guests.


On and Off Site Fire Risk Assessments for Construction Sites (Timber Frame)

Construction sites should also have fire risk assessments carried out. These are especially important on sites close to other buildings or those constructed of flammable materials such timber. In order to fully comply with HSE regulations an off and on site fire risk assessment needs to be carried out.
