Fire Risk Assessment

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) came into effect in October 2006. The FSO applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMO's). 

The law applies to you if you are:
  • responsible for business premises
  • an employer or self-employed with business premises
  • responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business
  • a charity or voluntary organisation
  • a contractor or managing agent with a degree of control over premises
  • providing accommodation for paying guests

Under FSO, the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire emergency plan.

You may feel that you do not have the expertise or knowledge to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment and raising a Fire Emergency Plan, it may be that you are more comfortable employing ASIS Risk Management to help you.
