A Fire Risk Assessment is a systematic checkup of a workplace to determine whether there are any fire risks or hazards that may potentially cause harm - it also serves to estimate the degree of risk for each of the identified hazards. By law, all commercial properties and workplaces must have a Fire Risk Assessment. Its main purpose is to eliminate or reduce any potential hazards to an appropriate and more secure standard.
If fire risk assessments are ignored and not carried out, commercial buildings and workplaces may be exposed to unnecessary fire risk and dangers, which can lead to potential fines, injuries or even death in the worst possible outcome.
A Fire Risk Assessment should be updated on a regular basis. A new risk assessment should be conducted every 5 years, or as soon as possible if the building's purpose, layout, or structure has changed significantly.
