How do we conduct the fire risk assessment?
It is important to ensure that the person responsible for the site or premisses is available so that the assessor can discuss the day to day operations of the site and the layout of the premisses., previous fire incidents and have previous fire risk assessments to hand, if any have been carried out.
The assessor will discuss with the responsible person areas of the site that they need to see and any relevant paperwork or equipment already on site. The information will include documentation, emergency procedures and safety records, along with insurance and special requirements for the safe running of the premises.
The assessor will then need to spend several hours inspecting the premisses. Depending on the site, they may need to be accompanied for safety reasons and may of course need to wear Personal Protective Equipment if the situation dictates this.
At the end of the inspection the assessor will talk about any areas where compliance standards are not being met, or where improvements could be made. The responsible person within the business can also take this opportunity to ask any relevant questions.
The assessment is conducted to identify your compliance with fire regulations, building regulations and health and safety requirements and if or what further work needs to be carried out or implemented. Our assessors have experience in helping you move forward with any further work that may need to be carried out, such as training, fire alarms, extinguishers, emergency lighting, fire safety signage and keeping service records and regular inspections.
To help your understanding, the report will also include photographic evidence of both good practice and areas for improvement. Risk are evaluated and the assessor will discuss with you the time limits required where some areas may need improvement and how the improvements can be carried out.
Your detailed report will be with you within 7 days and the assessor will be available for any further questions or help and advice for the recommendations. PAS 79 documents are accepted by insurance companies and you can therefore forward the documents with confidence.
