Fire Risk Assessments
Does your organisation comply with the fire regulations?
RoSPA's Fire Risk Assessment service has been designed with the advice of a senior fire professional specifically to help you comply, whilst also prioritising areas for future attention.
A RoSPA consultant will assess a broad range of risk factors including sources of ignition, means of escape, warning systems, risk to personnel and many more.
Using a numeric rating scale and 'traffic light system' combined with qualitative review, the RoSPA consultant will be able to make clear, even to busy management, the significance of any risks found. During consultation with the client, an initial action plan can also be developed to facilitate change if needed.
RoSPA's Fire Risk Assessment offers a highly flexible approach as users of the service can add further risk factors to the assessment where they may apply. Some buildings for example might have more difficult means of escape from fire than others, meaning that more specific risk factors must be reviewed in this area.
Recent litigation, as well as forthcoming legislative change, makes the responsibility for safety in the event of fire clear. Landlords, occupiers, and managers must ensure that Fire Risk Assessments are as comprehensive and up-to-date as possible, in order to prevent incidents occurring. According to the Fire Protection Association, 77% of businesses experiencing a major fire never fully recover.
