Why fire risk assessments important for workplaces?

A fire risk safety assessment is a very important as it makes your workplace a safe environment for your employees. It also creates awareness for making the right decisions during the onset of a fire at your location. 

A fire assessment is now a legal requirement for all business premises in the UK.

Why conduct fire risk assessments at a workplace?
  • First, it provides you and your employees the guarantee of having a safe business place to work
  • Well maintained and checked fire safety equipment will help prevent you from major damage to your property and protect the people in the case of a fire
  • By conducting fire risk assessments, you can get to understand the possible risk factors in the workplace and be able to implement the right procedures to control and reduce the risks

Can a business owner conduct the fire risk assessment?

Yes, the assessment can be carried out by the person responsible for businesses who employee five or more people. The fire risk assessment involves the below five tests.

Spotting the fire risks

Fire will start up if the following three things are present 1.) source of ignition 2.) Fuel 3.) Oxygen. An assessor should look out for are places where these come together. Keeping the stationary supplies, empty boxes, fabrics, plastics, including foam cushions and any potentially flammable materials such as gas canisters in a safe place may avoid fire accidents.

Spot the people who are at risk

During a fire alarm immediately help the people who are working alone or are disabled and who may find difficulty in evacuating. Equally, consider the visitors or the guests at your office who are not familiar with your workplace, help them get out calmly and quickly.

Evacuation plan

This is the important process of the fire assessment. A proper and an effective evacuation procedure should be planned with clear action to be taken. The relevant people (Fire wardens and responsible people) should know their role in the event of a fire.

Record your observation

Record all the findings during the assessment. Design and prepare an emergency plan for fast recovery of the people at risk. 


All the recordings should be updated at regular intervals. The fire risk assessment must be carried out regularly with dates when records and reviews were re-evaluated and updated. This will help to cover you and stay in line with the law.
