Fire Risk Assessment
Fire Risk Assessments are a requirement of the Regulatory Reform (Fire) Order 2005. Eurosafe UK are able to undertake such assessments on commercial properties on a national basis using Assessors based in our regional offices.
Under these new regulations employers need to ensure that a Fire Risk Assessment is undertaken by a competent person. It is important to note that employers are solely responsible for all issues relating to fire safety within their workplace.
When the regulations were introduced on 1st October 2006 general requirements were placed on employers to address several key requirements, including:
- Fire Fighting Equipment
- Training of employees
- Emergency escape routes and exits
- Maintenance of fire fighting equipment, alarms etc.
- Record keeping
At Eurosafe UK we have a strong team of Fire Risk Assessors who have all been trained, as a minimum, to the Institute of Fire Engineers 5 day part 1 course. This qualification, together with many years experience and an internal continual professional development programme, ensures that clients can be satisfied that Eurosafe UK has the necessary skills and experience to be classed as competent.
Eurosafe UK are currently working with several major clients to help them roll out a series of Fire Risk Assessments on their national property portfolios.
Another part of our Fire Risk service is assisting Architects and other Designers with their fire planning on schemes where a complex fire safety strategy is needed.
Should you be interested in using Eurosafe UK to assist you with your duties under the regulations please contact Carol Downie on 01904 691515.
