Why do I need a fire risk assessment?

The Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 requires most premises, excluding private homes, to have a fire risk assessment.

If you run any type of residential, commercial or industrial facility, then it is your legal responsibility to ensure that fire risks are assessed by a competent fire risk assessor and that appropriate fire safety measures are put in place.

What do fire risk assessments in Manchester involve?

A fire risk assessment has five components.

Identify the fire hazards

Our trained and experienced assessors will visit your building and make a detailed survey to identify any fire hazards.

All premises have the potential for a dangerous fire, but the fire risks in your building could be exacerbated by its age and construction or the activities carried out as part of your business,

Identify people at risk

Risk assessments look at how to protect people from the risk of fire.

The potential risk to life in a sparsely staffed building is likely to be different to that in a care home or to a house of multiple occupancy, and our our fire assessors will take account of this while compiling their reports.

Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks

Our fire risk assessors will suggest ways to ensure that your premises and its occupants are fully protected from fire and that you comply with your legal obligations.

Recommendations may include the installation of more fire doors or more significant changes like a new fire sprinkler system.

Preparation of an emergency plan and the provision of training

It is essential that all your staff know what to do in the event of a fire to ensure their safety.

Review and update the fire risk assessment

Fire risk assessments should be completed regularly, and your risk assessment report should include a suggested future review date.

About Manchester

Manchester was called Cottonopolis in the nineteenth century because of its importance as a centre of the cotton trade. The Manchester Ship Canal, which opened in 1894, connected the city to the Irish Sea and made it easy to send cotton all over the world, bringing huge wealth to Manchester.

The city’s fortunes declined in the twentieth century, but now the city has reestablished itself as a thriving business and cultural centre. The city’s first metropolitan mayor, Andy Burnham, has been dubbed ‘King of the North’ for his role in promoting Manchester’s interests.
