As from 1st October 2006 it is a legal requirement for every workplace to have a Fire Risk Assessment, while those employing five or more persons will have to be able to produce a formalised written Fire Risk Assessment using the applied risk profiling and fire safety management strategies detailed in British Standards.
A Fire Risk Assessment assesses the fire risks, the protective and preventative measures and processes/procedures in force in premises against established standards. The assessment identifies necessary controlling measures to remove or reduce risk to an acceptable level and produces an action plan for compliance. TSG Safety Solutions follows strict assessment protocols against applied enforcement criteria to identify and assess suitability of:
A Risk Assessment must be carried out if:
• You are an employer, even if you have one employee
• You are a landlord or managing agent in control of a building
• You are responsible for managing the common-access areas of a block of flats, maisonettes or HMO (house in multiple occupation)
