Fire Risk Assessment for Offices, Business & Workplace

Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessment: Ensure you comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

Employers and/or those responsible (the ‘Responsible Person’) for non-domestic, commercial, industrial and residential premises are legally required to carry out or arrange for a third party to carry out a workplace Fire Safety Risk Assessment of your premises in order to be legally compliant.

A workplace fire risk assessment will identify any potential fire hazards in your place of work; this may include anything that could start a fire and sources of oxygen which will intensify a fire. The assessment will also identify any people who may be at risk such as people who work alone or in isolated areas and people with a disability.  A fire risk assessment for offices and small businesses will also ensure there is adequate emergency planning and that you and your staff are trained to follow procedure should a fire emergency arise.

Fire Safety Risk Assessments are subject to regular review.

Remember, most fires are preventable.

What Is A Risk Assessment?

A risk assessment is a process whereby risks and hazards are identified and evaluated. In the workplace, a risk assessment will look at the work space and the work activities. Any risk or hazards identified will be noted. Wherever “reasonably practicable” these risks should be reduced, controlled or eliminated.

Fire Risk Assessment Process

If you are the owner of a business you are responsible for fire safety. One of your duties as the responsible person is to carry out a building fire risk assessment and to review it on a regular basis. This is essential in fire prevention and in keeping people safe.  It follows a 5 step risk assessment process.

This process is recommended by the HSE

Identification of fire hazards

Sources of heat and fuel must be kept apart. We will identify any areas where this is a risk.

Identify any persons at risk  

Although everyone is at risk in the case of a fire, some groups of people are at greater risk. We will identify these groups for you.

Evaluate and act  

We will evaluate the risks in order to eliminate, reduce or control them.

Record, plan, train 

You will receive expert advice on record keeping and emergency planning including Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPs).

Review  

We will advise you on how to keep your assessments current and appropriate through reviewing and updating.

We Also Offer Other Risk Assessments

Standard DSE Assessments
Every employee working regularly at a workstation should have one of these. Lasting around 20 minutes, the Assessor will  assess the workstation to make sure it is set up correctly and to identify any risks. Shortly after the assessments, a completed assessment form will be sent to you. This form lists observations and any changes made/that need to be made in order to achieve compliance with HSE regulations.

Advanced DSE Assessments
These are one to one sessions and take between forty five minutes to an hour with the employee and are mainly for those with musculoskeletal injuries such as back pain, neck pain or a Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD).
The Assessor will address both the employee’s ailment and their posture.  Ergonomic items and assistive technology may be recommended to help increase that person’s comfort levels at work.

Clinical DSE Assessments

A clinical DSE Assessment carried out by one of our highly trained clinicians may be suitable for a user who:

  • has a long history of medical intervention
  • a severe disability or impairment
  • needs specialist equipment
  • has a complex/multiple condition(s)

Maternity DSE Assessments
These take about 45 minutes per person and include a report with recommendations on what should be done over the two trimester periods whilst at work.

Assistive Technology Workstation Assessments
These are for workers with varying disability levels.  We match the person’s disability to the best assistive technology.  Each evaluation is based on the individual’s needs and may include augmentative communication, mobility, environmental control or computer access.

Home Worker Assessments
These can be simple home workstation assessments or more complex depending on the employee’s circumstances and/or ailment.
Our assessors will visit your employee’s home to carry out a thorough DSE Risk Assessment, which will include recommendations to ensure a safe and comfortable work environment at home.

Online DSE Self Assessments
Our very popular and easy to use online DSE Self Assessment solutions are designed to save time and money when there are many workstations and/or they are geographically spread making a traditional assessment too costly.
