From 1st October 2006 The Regulatory Reform Order requires the responsible person of any non domestic premises to carry out a fire risk assessment, including measures to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire and identify persons at risk.
Legislation doesn’t state a precise frequency for conducting a fire risk assessment however Article 9, (3) of The Regulatory Reform Order states that it needs to be kept up to date and done again if there has been significant change to the environment.
As most changes within the workplace can seem minor UKSM recommend carrying out fire risk assessments annually.
On completion of the assessment we issue a written document detailing the findings and any actions required. As we understand the importance of these documents we aim to process and distribute these within 72 hours. An electronic copy is also available upon request.
