A Fire risk assessment (FRA) is an evaluation of a property to identify potential fire hazards and assess the level of risk. It helps determine measures to prevent fire incidents and ensure the safety of occupants.
The Fire Safety Order whereby you must complete a FRA for the place in which you are responsible, and it must be deemed suitable and sufficient.
A FRA involves a systematic process to identify potential fire hazards, evaluate the risks, and implement appropriate control measures. The steps include:
1. Knowledge gathering: Understanding the premises, occupants, and relevant fire safety legislation.
2. Identifying fire hazards: Recognising potential sources of ignition, fuel, and oxygen.
3. Evaluating fire risks: Determining the likelihood and potential impact of a fire occurrence.
4. Identifying people at risk: Considering the vulnerability of occupants, visitors, and neighbouring properties.
5. Evaluating existing control measures: Assessing the effectiveness of current fire safety measures.
6. Implementing control measures: Introducing necessary precautions and preventive measures.
7. Recording findings: Documenting the assessment, including hazards, risks, and control measures.
8. Reviewing and updating: Regularly reviewing the assessment and adjusting control measures as needed.
9. Communicating the findings: Informing relevant individuals and organisations about the assessment outcomes.
10. Training and awareness: Educating occupants and staff on fire safety procedures and precautions.
11. Periodic reassessment: Conducting regular reassessments to ensure ongoing fire safety compliance.
