Fire safety risk assessment for your premises

The Fire Safety Risk Assessment has been developed to identify hazards and to reduce the risk of those hazards causing harm. It will also help to determine what fire safety measures and management policies are necessary to ensure the safety of people in the building, should a fire occur.

Talk to us

Responsibility for complying with the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 rests with the Duty Holder.

 

In a workplace, this could be the employer as well as any other person who may have control to any extent of any part of the premises, for example, the occupier or owner. Employees have a duty to cooperate with employers to ensure the safety of others from fire.

 

If you are the Duty Holder, you must carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises, which must focus on the safety of all ‘relevant persons’ in case of fire.

 

Your fire risk assessment will help you identify risks that can be removed or reduced and to decide the nature and extent of the general fire precautions you need to take to protect people against the fire risks that remain. If you employ five or more people, you must record the significant findings of your risk assessment.

 

PAS 79:2012 (Publicly Available Specification) gives guidance and corresponding examples of documentation for undertaking, and recording the significant findings of, fire risk assessments in premises and parts of premises for which fire risk assessments are required by legislation. It is not applicable in the case of a single-family private dwelling, or necessarily applicable to premises during the construction phase1 but is applicable to vacant premises, for which a fire risk assessment is required. The methodology is intended to provide a structured approach to fire risk assessment for people with knowledge of the principles of fire safety; it is not intended as a guide to fire safety.
