Under current fire legislation, a written fire risk assessment must be carried out if you employ more than 5 people, or the owner/manager/landlord of residential flats or a HMO with communal areas, or the public visit your premises.
The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (2005) applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs).
The law applies to you if you are:
- Responsible for any business premises
- An employer or self-employed with business premises
- Responsible for part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
- A charity or voluntary organisation
- A contractor with a degree of control over any premises
- Providing accommodation for paying guests, including holiday lets
Our Fire Risk Assessments are carried out by an Institute of Fire Engineers registered surveyor, giving you peace of mind that the assessment is undertaken correctly and in accordance with the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (2005). On completion of the site assessment, a report will be generated from the information collected highlighting any significant findings and prioritising them in an easy to follow list.
