Fire risk assessment
Helping you comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
What is a fire risk assessment?
According to the Fire Protection Association, 77% of businesses experiencing a major fire never fully recover. A fire risk assessment is a process involving the systematic evaluation of the factors that determine the hazard from fire, the likelihood that there will be a fire and the consequences if one were to occur. There are both qualitative and quantitative methods of risk assessment that can be used.
