Fire Risk Assessment

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO), which came into force in October 2006, replaced various pieces of fire safety legislation.

As a consequence of the new Order, it now falls to the 'responsible person' (defined as anyone who has control over the premises), who may be the employer, occupier or owner of the business or premises, to undertake a risk assessment and manage any fire risk in the premises.

This requirement extends to a wide range of premises, including shops, care homes, hospitals, community halls, pubs, restaurants, hotels, schools and factories.

The Order provides for penalties to be imposed, including fines or closure of the premises, if the risk assessment is not undertaken. Pinders have appropriately experienced Surveyors with a wealth of knowledge available to undertake fire risk assessments.
