Fire Risk Assessment
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is Law, which came into force in 2006, and is the main governing piece of Legislation driving Fire Safety Law in England and Wales, after the decision was made by the U.K. Government to simplify Fire Safety Legislation and consolidate some 80 former Acts of legislation, that were in place prior to the Fire Safety Order.
It is a legal requirement of the Fire Safety Order, (Article 9) that a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment is carried out in any workplace, and where there are over 5 employees, that this should be documented. 'Any' workplace includes any place of work such as a Construction Site for example.
A Fire Risk Assessment assesses the fire risks, the protective and preventative measures, and processes / management procedures in place on any premises, and identifies necessary measures to remove or reduce the risk from fire to an acceptable level, ensuring compliance with the Fire Safety Order. Falcon Fire follows strict assessment protocols using recognised legislative guidance, including approved Building Regulations, DCLG (Department for Communities and Local Government) Guidance, and all relevant British Standards as applicable. All of our Fire Risk Assessors are fully trained and qualified, and Falcon Fire Prevention is a member of the Fire Protection Association (FPA).
Our Fire Risk Assessments are as an absolute minimum, compliant with all applicable legislative guidance, including the BSI issued PAS79 format and separately HSG168 (HSE Guidance for Fire Safety on Construction Sites) and the Joint Code of Practice (Fire Prevention on Construction Sites). As such, you can be assured that any Fire Risk Assessment carried out on your behalf by Falcon Fire will be to the highest standard, 'suitable and sufficient' as required by the Fire Safety Order, and of course fully compliant.
