Fire Risk Assessments/DSEAR

Fires can have a devastating impact due to the risk it poses to peoples’ lives and the effect it can have on an organisation, from a loss of business income and property damage, to increased insurance premiums. If you own, manage, or operate a business, you will need to comply with fire safety laws and conduct fire risk assessments to protect both people and buildings’ in the event of a fire.

Why do you need to do Fire Risk Assessments?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in England and Wales on the 1st October 2006. It improves fire safety by placing the responsibility to reduce the risk of fire to people and buildings’ on the employer, or the ‘responsible person’ for that building.

The ‘responsible person’ for each building is required to carry out a fire risk assessment and take steps to reduce or remove any risks. The assessment should consider the effect a fire may have on anyone in or around the premises and needs reviewing regularly.

How can Compass help?

Our qualified risk assessors are able to undertake fire safety risk assessments to help landlords and occupiers comply with their obligations under the act.

The fire risk assessment covers:

  • Fire hazards and fire risks
  • Means of escape and escape planning
  • Firefighting equipment
  • Fire detection system
  • Emergency lighting
  • Signage
  • Combustible storage
  • Arson prevention
  • Staff training and record keeping

After inspection of the site and a detailed fire risk assessment is undertaken, you will receive a comprehensive report detailing significant finds and recommendations to bring your premises to the required safety standard.

How Much?

Compass can carry out a fire risk assessment from £195 + vat.

DSEAR Assessments
