Expert Fire Risk Assessment by Industry Professionals

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

Since the introduction of The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005​, the responsibilty for fire safety falls on 'The Responsible Person'.


In most cases 'The Responsible Person' will be the owner, employer or the occupier of a premises.

It is the responsibility of 'The Responsible Person' to take appropriate action to prevent fire and protect building users in the event of a fire.

The First Step- A Fire Risk Assessment

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order requires that every non-domestic premises has a fire risk assessment.

Any premises which is a workplace, somewhere the public can access and residential buildings with multiple occupants needs one.

The fire risk assessment be reviewed every year, and whenever a major change in the building layout or use has occured.

Your insurer will expect that you have complied with the law and have a current fire risk assessment in place. Failure to do so could invalidate your insurance.

Failure to comply with the law can result in a fine of up to £5000, or the impisonment of the owner or manager of the premises. A poor fire risk assessment will also put you on the wrong side of the law.

Having a fire risk assessment carried out by a professionally qualified fire risk assessor ensures that you stay safe, legal and insured.
