Fire Risk Assessments

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (often referred to as the FSO) is an order made under the Regulatory Reform Act 2001 and combines all previous fire safety law into a single piece of legislation. Fire certificates are no longer provided and those previously issued have no legal status.

The FSO requires any person who exercises some level of control for premises (the ‘responsible person’)(also known as ‘Designated Individual’) to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure that people can escape safely if a fire does occur.

The FSO requires the responsible person (DI) to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed, for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions needed.

The FSO applies to virtually all premises in England and Wales and covers nearly every type of building, structure and open space, but it excludes single private domestic dwellings. It does include areas used in common in blocks of flats and other multi-occupied dwellings.

A clear and concise fire risk assessment

DO Safety First can remove the stress of undertaking a fire safety risk assessment by providing a consultant who is suitably experienced in your specific industry sector. After working alongside your responsible persons (DI), we will produce a report which includes a fire risk assessment record of significant findings, a clear and concise fire risk assessment action plan detailing actions recommended, and a full fire risk assessment of hazards in the building.

Effectively reduce, minimise or manage risks

We ensure recommendations are appropriate to the premises and business circumstances to effectively reduce, minimise or manage risks. Our fire risk assessment services and recommendations are developed to ensure not only the safety of employees and others who may be affected by a fire on the premises but also protection to the premises and its contents.
