Fire Risk Management

Ensuring compliance

Fire Risk Management

Baily Garner (Health & Safety) Ltd's fire risk management service has been designed to ensure compliance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This places an increasing emphasis on employers’ legal duty to carry out formal fire risk assessments. Nearly all workplaces, non-domestic premises and common areas of flats must now have a ‘suitable and sufficient’ fire risk assessment. The employer, or the person who controls the premises, must ensure a ‘competent person’ carries out this fire risk assessment and that it is recorded.

The fire safety law now:

  • Requires businesses to prevent fires and reduce risk
  • Makes you responsible to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and the immediate vicinity.

The order applies to virtually all buildings, places and structures other than individual private dwellings. This also includes parts of houses in multiple occupation and common parts of blocks of flats.

We carry out a thorough assessment of your building which considers the following:

  • Sources of ignition
  • Means of escape
  • Emergency planning and training
  • Fire fighting equipment
  • Sources of fuel
  • Detection and warning systems 
  • People at risk
  • Safety of fire fighters
  • Structural features and the spread of fire

Reports are produced on a bespoke basis to suit your needs and to ensure compliance with all current regulations.
