RISK ASSESSMENTS

 

 

The 'Regulatory Reform (Fire safety) Order' came into effect in 2005.

 

Under this new Fire safety legislation every employer now has a duty of care to ensure their property has a full Fire risk assessment. 

We only use fully trained 'NEBOSH' Fire Risk Assessors.

 

Contact us NOW to arrange your Fire risk assessment and stay fully compliant with the new 'Fire Safety Order'

 

The 'Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005' is made up of various sections. To assist in being able to understand the various aspects we have created an overview of relevant sections throughout our website. Please check out our other pages for further information relating to the specific service. 

 

Below is an overview of the legislation and should be read in conjunction with Section 9 of the 'Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005' which relates to risk assessments.

 

A risk assessment is required by law. It is used to identify sensible measures and ensure your taking reasonable steps to control the risks in the workplace and make adequate provisions for people with disability and people under the age of 18. Any person who is under the age of 18 must not be employed unless a specific risk assessment has been completed. 

 

The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks.  Where a dangerous substance is or is liable to be present in or on the premises, the risk assessment must include consideration of the matters set out in Part 1 of Schedule 1. 

 

Risk assessment must be reviewed by the responsible person regularly in order to keep it up to date particularly if the following occur:

  • there is reason to suspect that it is no longer valid

  • there has been a significant change in the matters to which it relates including when the premises undergo significant changes, extensions, or conversions and where changes to an assessment are required as a result of any such review, the responsible person must make them. 

  • As soon as practicable after the assessment is made or reviewed, the responsible person must record the information if they employ 5 or more employees.
