About Fire Risk Assessments
Most workplaces throughout the UK, are required to carry out fire risk assessments by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Managementof Health & Safety at Work Regulations. The fire risk assessment will help you determine the chances of a fire occurring and the dangers from fire to your staff or anyone else who visits your workplace.
The primary emphasis of the fire regulations is to protect life. But what businesses must consider is that fires cost money and the costs of a serious fire can be very high. In fact, many businesses fail to reopen and of those that do, 90% fail within the first 12 months.
A very real risk to business in all types of workplaces is from arson and should be considered as part of your assessment. A Home Office study suggests that in an average week, 3,500 fires are deliberately started. Costs from this are calculated as being in excess of £1.3 billion a year.
Even if previously a fire certificate covered your premises, you will still need to carry out a fire risk assessment. What your assessment may identify is that few, if any, additional precautions are needed.
