In a way “It does what it says on the tin” It is an assessment of the Fire Risk within a specific building/premises. This assessment is designed to provide the Responsible Person with a clear and concise overview of any potential fire risk and advise them of the steps they can take to reduce it.
For example, there may be an electrical risk of fire in a certain area, therefore an assessor would highlight this and may recommend the installation of a suitable firefighting appliance like a CO2 fire extinguisher which is safe for use on live electrical equipment and provides a means to tackle the fire risk in this area in its early stages.
A similar example is an MOT on a car. A specialist completes the MOT and advises you of any issues found which you should act upon to improve the safety of the vehicle. A Fire Risk Assessment can be described as a similar process. Our qualified assessors will assess the property and, in their report, will advise you of any action you should take to reduce the risk of fire.
