The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
“The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on him by or under this Order. Any such assessment must be reviewed by the responsible person regularly so as to keep it up to date”
The responsibility for complying with the order rests with you, the responsible person, and will be enforced by the Local Authority Fire and Rescue Service The enforcing authority will have the power to inspect your premises and will expect to see a copy of the assessment.
WHAT IS A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT?
A Fire Risk Assessment is a methodical and organised look at your premises and what activities are conducted. What could potentially start a fire and who might be harmed.
Identify fire hazards – Sources of ignition, fuel and oxygen.
Identify people at risk – People in and around the premises
Evaluate, remove, reduce and protect from risk – Fire alarms, Firefighting, Escape routes, lighting, Signs and Maintenance.
Record, plan, inform, instruct and train – Record findings and action taken, Inform, instruct and provide training.
Review – Keep under review and revise if necessary.
Fireshield can assist your compliance to this requirement in thoroughly examining the potential risk and spread of fire, and advising on removing, reducing and protecting from risk

THE ASSESSMENT PROCESS
MOBILE FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT DATA COLLECTION
Assessors highlight all non-compliances and potential risks in your business. The assessor will fill out the report whilst they are attending your premises and work with you throughout the process. Any risks that are apparent on the assessment will be flagged on the report. All non-compliances that are high risk will be highlighted to you before the assessor leaves your site.
The property summary provides a detailed interactive account of each property including location information, floor plans, photos and contact details. The management overview features a unique colour-coded visual risk meter detailing if the building is currently classed as low, medium or high risk enabling you to view at a glance whether actions are required. Your Interactive Log Book is kept secure by storing it online and can be instantly updated at any time.
Risks are listed in colour-coded priority, so you easily assess what needs to be addressed immediately. Live updates allow you to easily manage the progress on each risk assessment ensuring you are always up-to-date.
Action Plans are created to provide the most cost effective solutions for any areas a premises fails to comply with current legislation. A jargon-free report provides a summary of colour coded risks, listed in order of priority. Each risk has a detailed report covering:
Why it is not compliant with fire regulations
What needs to be done
Who is responsible
When it needs to be completed
Each action includes notes from our assessor, floor plans and photos to show you exactly what and where the issues are.
Completed action plan: Once a remedial action that was recommended in the Action Plan has been completed and signed off, simply click the archive button and it is moved to the archive section. This provides an audit trail of everything you have achieved in making your premises safe and legally compliant. This also automatically creates a lower risk profile on the Property Summary page meaning that your risk rating will continue to go down as the remedial actions are completed.
