What is a Fire Risk Assessment

A fire safety risk assessment lays out all the fire hazards and risks in a premise. You can then decide which risks are acceptable, and which require an action plan to reduce or control the risk. It is a legal requirement that most UK businesses have a fire risk assessment in place. It is a written document and is much more than just a record of fire extinguisher testing etc. The legislation states that a copy must be available on-site for inspection at all times. Elite Fire Equipment Services produces fire safety risk assessments that are designed to meet the specific requirements of your premises and will meet all the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, as well as the latest Fire Safety Act 2021.

Fire Risk Assessments and Emergency Plan Services

While fire risk assessments can be done by the responsible individual in your business, many people choose to outsource this to a professional fire services company such as Elite Fire Equipment Services in Wigan. The law can be complex, and the safety of people who use your premises is paramount. We have the experience and knowledge to carry out your assessment and advise on your emergency plan, to safeguard the people in your business.

Fire safety audits

Our audits are extremely thorough and go into a high level of detail. Our fire risk assessors work independently. By using our step-by-step-question audit process, combined with many years of fire safety experience, we will ensure that your premises are fully assessed for fire risks to life, property, and business continuity.

Following the fire risk assessment, we then provide a detailed consultation to discuss any significant findings and required actions to implement a satisfactory standard of fire safety within your premises.

One of the most important things that needs to happen as soon as a fire starts is getting people to safety as quickly and effectively as possible. Knowing where to go and how to get there is the key to a successful evacuation. We can prepare your fire escape plan for you ensuring your staff stay safe and your company remains compliant.

Planning what to do in the event of a fire, can save lives. Part of the work done by us involves understanding how people react in an emergency. Forecasting behaviour and traffic flow can help to protect people in an emergency situation. We use our knowledge and experience to form your emergency plan, and as part of our fire safety management.

What is Involved?

When you contact us to carry out the fire risk assessments for your business, we will explain our process clearly to you. Our engineers will visit your premises, and spend time ensuring that they understand how the building is used. Different factors need to be investigated to ensure that all the elements of safety & risk are covered and that we can provide a detailed and comprehensive risk assessment and emergency plan. These will include the size of buildings, use of buildings, number of personnel on-site, traffic flow, and footfall, as well as any other contributing factors that may impact on risk. Based on the information gathered our engineers will be able to put together an in-depth fire risk assessment and emergency plan. .

Fire Risk Assessments Covers a Range of Areas Including:

Fire risk assessments cover a multitude of areas including fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, escape routes, fire doors, fire alarms, fire safety training, safe storage of dangerous substances, evacuation plans, provision for vulnerable or disabled people, and providing information to people on the premises. Fire safety risk assessments show both the risks and the actions to be taken to mitigate these risks.

We are a professional fire services company and as such are up to date and informed about the current fire safety law, including the latest law; the Fire Safety Act 2021. We act in accordance with the regulations at all times to ensure that the service you receive is second to none.

Benefits of Fire Risk Assessment

Fire risk assessments are a legal requirement. However, having up-to-date and detailed fire risk assessments, not only means that you are fulfilling your legal requirement, but also that you are reducing the chance of a fire occurring. In the event of a fire occurring, having fire risk assessments increases your chance of getting people safely out of the building, thus reducing the chance of accident or injury.
