Fire risk assessment is vital

It’s a legal requirement to carry out fire risk assessments (FRA) which identify potential fire hazards.

If you own business premises or other non-domestic premises, or are either a landlord, employer or leaseholder, the law requires that you carry out a fire risk assessment on your premises. This requires the assistance of a qualified fire risk assessor who is experienced and can see potential hazards that you may not see. We work in partnership with former Fire Officers or Fire Engineers, who carry out all of our fire risk assessments to ensure we provide the very best service available, for this vital task.

The FRA enables you to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and meet all of the requirements detailed in the order. The FRA will identify all possible fire hazards in the work environment and outline prevention measures to ensure compliance and other safety precautions required. As a fully accredited ISO 9001 organisation, you can be assured that our processes and the partners we work with, will provide you with the very best service in our fire risk assessments, and also in all of the services we offer.

Their assessment of our fire security needs provides for the safety and welfare of all our team.

A safe workplace should be a given

Our fire risk assessors ensure your premises are as safe as they can be, providing fire protection for everyone.

The abolishment of fire certificates for buildings not considered high risk, means that businesses are now required to complete a fire risk assessment to confirm safety for those who work within the building.

A safe workplace should be a given

Reducing the dangers

It’s often the small detail that can be missed when assessing a building for risk of fire or hazards.

Firstly, you need to identify who will act as the building’s fire assessor and this person will work with a fully qualified and experienced third party fire risk assessor to identify and consider a range of measures as part of a fire risk assessment. Yee Group can advise you on ways to meet current legislation including:

  • fire detection
  • raising the alarm
  • suitable provision for first aid and fire fighting equipment
  • positioning of first aid and fire fighting equipment
  • appropriate signage
  • training staff and in-house emergency policies
  • escape routes and exits that lead directly to safety
  • necessary emergency illumination of escape routes
