Fire Risk Assessments for Businesses

The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 (FSA) and Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) apply to all business premises. It is a legal requirement for businesses and organisations to undertake Fire Risk Assessments in order to identify how to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire.

Types of Premises

Integrated Compliance Services have successfully assisted businesses throughout Scotland to adhere to their legal requirements of a Fire Risk Assessment. Types of premises we have worked with include:

  • Offices
  • Factories and Warehouses
  • Supermarkets, High Street Shops and Department Stores
  • Restaurants, Pubs and Cafes
  • Nightclubs
  • Hotels and B&Bs
  • Medical and dental practices
  • Schools, Colleges and Universities
  • Nurseries and care homes
  • Sports centres and stadiums
  • Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
  • Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO)

It is vital to ensure that your Fire Risk Assessment is updated on a regular basis, ideally every 12 months. It is particularly important to do this if significant changes have been made to a premises or an organisation has increased its number of employees. It is also a requirement of some business insurance policies that regular Fire Risk Assessments are undertaken.

Who can undertake the risk assessment for legionella?

As an employer or a person in control of premises, you must appoint person or persons responsible for helping you manage your health and safety duties, e.g. take responsibility for managing risks. A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to manage health and safety, including the control measures. You could appoint one, or a combination of:

  • yourself
  • one or more workers
  • someone from outside your business

If you decide to employ contractors to carry out your risk assessment or other work, it is still the responsibility of the competent person to ensure that the work is carried out to the required standards. Remember, before you employ a contractor, you should be satisfied that they can do the work you want to the standard that you require.
