Fire Risk Assessment Records & Reviews

Fire Risk Assessment Records & Reviews


The employer or "responsible person" in control of business premises is required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to make, record, review and, where necessary, revise risk assessments as regards all hazards. 

The recommended "5 Steps to Risk Assessment" applies to Fire Safety Risk Assessment similar to all other risk assessments:

1. Look for and identify the hazards;
2. Decide who might be harmed;
3. Evaluate the level of risk(s) arising from the hazards and decide whether existing precautions are adequate or more should be done;
4. Record your findings;
5. Review your fire risk assessment from time to time and revise it if necessary.

A fire risk assessment must also be reviewed, and revised as necessary, whenever there is doubt over its' validity or whenever there are significant changes that can affect fire risks.

If the employer has five or more staff, he must record the significant findings of the fire risk assessment/s (or any revision/s) and any group of employees especially at risk from fire.
