Frequently Asked Questions

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires the “responsible person” to arrange for a fire risk assessment carried out by a competent person. 

A competent person is someone who has the necessary skills, knowledge, experience and training to carry out a fire risk assessment. Depending on the nature, size and location of the premises you may be able to carry out a fire risk assessment yourself, but for more complex or high risk premises you may need to engage a professional fire risk assessor. 

This depends on the size of the premises, the number of people working or sleeping on the premises and the degree of risk. Please call us for a quote. 

The Fire Risk Assessor will introduce himself and will ask to meet the responsible person for the premises. The responsible person should be familiar with the access, layout and operation of the premises in normal day to day running. The Assessor will then talk through the relevant aspects of his visit and the available information sources open to the responsible person. These sources will include documentation, emergency procedures and safety records, along with insurance and special requirements for the safe running of the premises. In the absence of the responsible person a competent colleague may take the role.
