Fire Risk Assessment...
A fire risk assessment is a systematic examination of what in your job activities and workplace potentially puts people in danger from fire.
It will aid in determining the probability of a fire developing and the fire hazards that the workplace poses to those who work there.
If you manage a building, it’s essential to do everything you can to prevent the risk of fire and keep people safe. It saves lives, it’s your legal obligation, and it’s smart business.
Unfortunately, assessments are frequently neglected, resulting in structures being exposed to unnecessary fire danger, occasionally resulting in fatalities.
A Fire Risk Assessment is required by law. If you are liable for a building, such as an employer, owner, or occupier of premises that aren’t a single private dwelling like a private home, you must have a fire risk assessment performed by a properly competent person.
Xeluxe Fire Safety Consultancy can provide complete fire risk assessment services for single and multi-site organisations as an experienced fire consultancy.
- It is your responsibility to detect and address fire risks and hazards in your workplace. Unless you have designated someone in your team as the responsible person for your premises, as a small business owner, you are usually the responsible person for your premises.
- If you live in a flat, the responsible person is usually the landlord or managing agent.
- The responsible person in a block of flats is only responsible for the common areas, such as corridors and stairwells. It is the responsibility of the resident to ensure that their individual apartment is fire-safe.
You could be penalized if your premises are unsafe or if you haven’t conducted an evaluation. We inspect properties as part of our responsibility to keep people safe from fire.
Xeluxe Fire Safety Consultancy keeps you, the employer, responsible for fire safety in your workplace.
