Download Your Fire Risk Assessment Form
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2006, it was underlined that regular fire safety assessments are a neccessity in workplaces, and ensured that Fire Risk Assessments became legal obligation for businesses with five or more employees.
That's why we've created a form that will help you recognise the need for a professional Fire Risk Assessment service in your building. Our template will help you identify whether or not your office's Fire Risk Assessment requires renewing, and additionally the need for safety improvements, staff training or equipment updates.
It covers the key areas, including:
- Fire Hazards - sources of ignition, fuel and oxygen on the premises
- Building - whether smoking is permitted, portable heating appliances are in use and damaged electrical equipment is lying around
- Fire Alarms - if you have a suitable fire alarm system in place, and how often it is tested
- Fire Fighting Equipment - the quantity and type of fire extinguishers in use and their exact locations
- Fire Doors and Exits - signage, ease of use and and the presence of obstructions
- People at Risk - number of employees on site, along with vulnerable people and escape plans for both in case of a fire
The Fire Risk Assessment document is to be completed by the responsible person within the business who has had adequate training in order to identify fire risks in the workplace. It is a free document for self-assessment purposes, not an official document of any kind, and therefore must not be used by professional fire risk assessors.
