IFC regularly provides comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments covering a wide range of building types, from airports and hospitals to sporting venues and high-rise housing. Our assessments consider all aspects of fire within the premises and set out what actions should be taken to keep occupants safe.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires the Responsible Person to develop general fire precautions for their premises, including the provision of a fire risk assessment. The fire risk assessment should consider all aspects of fire within the premises and set out what should be done to keep people safe.
Fire risk assessments are not just a legal requirement, they can be time consuming, complex, often require specialist knowledge and opinion; so we understand it can be a difficult task to get right and properly maintain.
That’s where we come in….
“Whilst accountability lies with a Responsible Person, assessments should always be carried out by a Competent Person”
There are a host of issues (large and small) that can impact, to varying degrees, the standard of fire safety. However once these are assessed, our competent and knowledgeable team can develop cost effective and workable recommendations and plan a systematic approach for prioritising objectives to eliminate or reduce any perceived risks.
If you would like some advice or would like us to conduct a Fire Risk Assessment, please get in touch
Issues that can effect the safety level of a building:
✓ The potential for ignition sources and combustible materials to be present
✓ The type of occupancy
✓ The number and location of accessible escape routes and exits
✓ The effectiveness of various passive and active fire safety systems, designed and installed into the building (such as fire alarms and fire doors)
✓ The fire safety equipment that is present (such as portable fire extinguishers)
✓ The standards of Fire Safety Management (good housekeeping, training)
