Fire Risk Assessments
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) affects those who are responsible for non-domestic premises, such as employers or owners.
Responsibility for complying with the Fire Safety Order rests with the aptly named 'responsible person'. If you are the responsible person you will have to carry out or arrange for a fire risk assessment to be carried out and if you employ five or more people you must record the significant findings of any fire risk assessments.
The government recommends that fire risk assessments should be carried out by suitably competent fire professionals. This enables the responsible person / duty holder to locate and select a Fire Risk Assessor who is competent at the prescribed level and is capable of carrying out a Fire Risk Assessment of the premises / workplace or similar establishment. The assessor will be able to identify and record fire risks, as well as carry out audits to verify another person's Fire Risk Assessments.
