FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT
Under the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) (Amendment) Regulations 1999, employers, occupiers and persons in control of premises are required to carry out a risk assessment of fire. Where 5 or more employees are at work, the assessment must be in writing and must identify those at risk.

PURPOSE OF LEGISLATION: To ensure employees and others who visit the premises are given a similar degree of protection as those working in or visiting premises which met the criteria for the need to have a Fire Certificate issued under the Fire Precautions Act 1971, or have received "exemption" for the need to hold such a certificate.

HSAS SUPPORT:
We work in close conjunction with clients in carrying out fire risk assessments of their operations. We provide a written report of findings and prepare a proposed action plan covering deficiencies or opportunities for improvement.
