Since October 2006, Fire Risk Assessments have been a legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and we have offered assessments in Hounslow ever since. Safe I.S. is here to guide you through this process to ensure you can comply with this legislation in a timely and efficient manner utilising our team of experienced and qualified assessors.
Our expert assessors create reports written to PAS79 (the Publicly Available Specification for Fire Risk Assessments) to ensure the report is both detailed but simple to follow.
What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
In a way "It does what it says on the tin" It is an assessment of the Fire Risk within a specific building/premises. This assessment is designed to provide the Responsible Person with a clear and concise overview of any potential fire risk and advise them of the steps they can take to reduce it.
For example, there may be an electrical risk of fire in a certain area, therefore an assessor would highlight this and may recommend the installation of a suitable firefighting appliance like a CO2 fire extinguisher which is safe for use on live electrical equipment and provides a means to tackle the fire risk in this area in its early stages.
A similar example is an MOT on a car. A specialist completes the MOT and advises you of any issues found which you should act upon to improve the safety of the vehicle. A Fire Risk Assessment can be described as a similar process. Our qualified assessors will assess the property and in their report will advise you of any action you should take to reduce the risk of fire.
