Fire Risk Assessments & Surveys
Every building, be it commercial, industrial, or multi-occupancy residential should by law have an up-to-date Fire Risk Assessment document.
A Fire Risk Assessment is a process involving the systematic evaluation of the factors that determine the hazard from fire, the likelihood that there will be a fire, and the consequences if one were to occur. There are both qualitative and quantitative methods of risk assessment that can be used.
A Fire Risk Assessment involves a physical inspection of the building to determine the adequacy of the existing fire precautions and the need for any additional measures. However, of equal importance to the physical inspection is a review of fire safety management in the organisation and consideration of the human factors – how people will respond to an emergency and whether they will take appropriate action.
