Fire Risk Assessment - Managing Occupied Buildings

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) sets out the law on construction site general fire safety. The FSO requires that a “responsible person“ must carry out, and keep up to date, a risk assessment and implement appropriate measures to minimise the risk to life and property from fire.

The landlord is responsible for ensuring there is co-operation and co-ordination between tenants on site. Stair Consultancy will ensure a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment is carried out. This will consider/include:

  • review building design and layout / travel distances / means of escape
  • a non-destructive inspection of the site common areas including plant rooms / compartmentation
  • a review of the management / evacuation procedures / fire drills (if applicable)
  • tenant monitoring
  • housekeeping
  • ignition sources
  • fire prevention / maintenance
  • security / risk of arson
  • use of contractors
  • provisions for people at particular risk

Fire risk assessments are drafted within one week of the site visit and issued to the client in either a printed or electronic format.
