Fire Risk Assessments Kent

Helping you protect your business against fires

fire risk assessments KentAs a Kent County Council registered contractor, Kent Electrical & Fire provide the highest standard of fire safety services to businesses and public organisations, including fire risk assessments carried out by certified fire safety experts.

What is the purpose of a fire risk assessment?

According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, Fire Risk Assessments set out a number of clear measures to:

  • Identify potential ignition sources and fire hazards.
  • Identify personnel at risk.
  • Calculate the type and number of fire extinguishers needed on your premises.
  • Evaluate, remove or reduce the risk of potential fire hazards as is reasonably practicable.

Your fire risk assessment will help you define your fire safety measures, as well as management policies and emergency protocols to ensure safety in the building should fire occur by:

  • Reducing the probability of a fire starting.
  • Ensuring all occupants are alerted and able to safely evacuate the premises.
  • Limiting the damage caused by a fire.

Clear advice, competitive cost and compliance

If your premises have been constructed and regularly maintained in accordance with building regulations and are of normal risk or below, a fire risk assessment can often be straightforward and without significant cost.

However, further guidance and action may be required depending on factors such as the size and occupancy of premises or any consequential risks.

Whatever the type of premises, our qualified fire technicians can assist you with:

  • Regular thorough and detailed fire risk assessments.
  • Clear advice and recommendations to help you mitigate fire risks.
  • Competitive cost analysis.
  • Compliance requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
  • Creating a bespoke emergency protocol.

Your legal requirements

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the owner, manager or responsible person of any non-domestic premises is required to:

  • Carry out regular fire risk assessments.
  • Reduce or eliminate the risk of fire.
  • Identify people at risk.

Your fire risk assessment must be carried out by a certified professional and will ensure your business complies with the latest health and safety regulations. During our assessment, our fire technician will survey your workplace and the building layout, including all non-domestic premises to which employees and/or relevant people have access, to provide you with a detailed report.

Where should fire extinguishers be positioned?

As part of your fire safety measures, fire extinguishers should normally be available:

  • At ‘Fire Points’ – i.e. escape routes on all floors.
  • Within quick reach – near to a door leading to a place of safety or near a specific fire risk.
  • In clear and visible viewnot behind doors or inside cupboards.
  • At an elevated height – ensuring the carrying handle is 1m from the floor for extinguishers heavier than 4kg and 1.5m for smaller units.
