How Do We Carry Out Fire Risk Assessments?

Fire Guard Services' five step risk assessment process includes:


Will identify potential sources of fire in the premises and assess their likelihood of causing harm. This step helps to identify the fire hazards present in the building.


We will identify the individuals who may be at risk in the event of a fire. This includes employees, visitors and members of the public. The assessment will consider factors such as mobility, location, and role.


We will evaluate the identified fire hazards and risks, and implement measures to remove, reduce, or protect against them. This may include installing fire safety equipment, implementing fire safety procedures, and providing training to staff.


We will document our findings and create a fire safety plan. This will include information on fire safety procedures, training requirements, and any necessary maintenance. We will also inform and instruct all personnel of their responsibilities in the event of a fire.


We will review the fire safety plan annually to ensure that it is up to date and effective. This will include assessing any changes to the premises, personnel, and fire safety equipment.

Your Fire Risk Assessment Questions Answered

A fire risk assessment is an important part of any business's safety plan. It is essential to determine the risk of fire and take the necessary steps to reduce the possibility of a fire or ensure the safety of your employees and customers.

In this short FAQ, we will address common questions about fire risk assessments, including what they are, why they are important, and who can conduct them.

A careful look at your premises and the people who use them, from a fire prevention perspective. It's about understanding the potential risks, then improving your fire safety precautions to keep people safe.

Unfortunately not. If you don't have the expertise – or time – to do the fire risk assessment yourself, appoint a specialist to do it for you.

A fire safety hazard is something that could give rise to a fire or smoke. For example, this could be a room full of electronics or badly managed combustible or flammable materials.

Building Factors, Smoke, Air Track, Heat, and Flame (B-SAHF) are critical fire behaviour indicators.
