Commercial Fire Risk Assessment

Commercial Fire Risk Assessment identifies potential fire hazards and risks in a commercial building. It is a thorough, step-by-step review of your commercial property and onsite activities to identify potential fire hazards and advise their elimination.

Who Needs Fire Risk Assessment?

According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is a legal responsibility of all non-domestic property owners to have a regular Fire Risk Assessment of their building. Under the law, if your building has more than five employees, you are required to keep a record of regular Fire Risk Assessments.

A Fire Risk Assessment of commercial properties is required to be carried out on an annual basis. This way, fire safety measures can be changed in case of changes in the building like an increase in the number of people, changes in floor plans, etc.
