How often Fire Risk Assessments should be done

Fire Risk Assessments: what's the purpose?

The purpose of a fire risk assessment is to evaluate a premises and the tasks that occur in/around it. A fire risk assessment will highlight areas where fires could start or can harm to the people in/around the premises.
The aim of the fire risk assessment is to identify any fire hazards including; reducing the risk of the hazards causing harm and to then decide what precautions and management arrangements are necessary to ensure the safety of people in/around the premises in the event of fire.
3000 Property Service's fire risk assessments allow companies to meet their duties under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 by ensuring that the fire risk assessment is carried out by a registered competent person.


Fire Risk Assessments: How Often should it be carried out?

A fire assessment should be done where there's a change in situation at any work place. Important risks will be overlooked so it can also help to avoid repetition in assessments that will be made in the near future when any other situations have been raised.
A risk assessment is a way that is used to identify health and safety hazards in relation to the people at a work place.


Your business has to have a fire risk assessment by law; the punishment for not having one is severe and you’d be putting everyone in your business at risk.
If that isn’t enough it is very doubtful that your insurance would pay out in the event of a fire. The consequences of that are unthinkable.
