Fire Risk Assessments
As the responsible person, you must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises.
This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe.
You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people.
By ‘responsible person’, the RRFSO means anyone who has any degree of control over the premises, which can include,
inter alia, the employer, owner, occupier, or managing agent.
When these Regulations came into force there is now a requirement f
or all employers to:
- Carry out a fire risk assessment of the workplace taking into consideration all employees and all other people who may be affected by a fire in the workplace, and to make adequate provision for any disabled people with special needs who use or may be present in the premises;
- Identify the significant findings of the risk assessment and the details of anyone who might be especially at risk in case of fire. If more than five people are employed or the premises are licensed it is a requirement that these significant findings are recorded; (However, the best evidence of compliance as well as best practice that a written record is produced on all occasions to assist with the process of ongoing reviews)
- Provide and maintain such fire precautions as are necessary to safeguard those who use the workplace; and
- Provide information, instruction, and training to employees about the fire precautions in the workplace

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Law on Fire Safety?
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 came into effect and replaced over 70 pieces of fire safety law. Almost all buildings, structures, and open spaces are covered by the Regulatory Reform Order. However, the Order does exclude residential buildings which are occupied by a single-family unit.
Why Is a Fire Risk Assessment Required?
A fire risk assessment is required to reduce the chance of a fire occurring and to reduce the amount of damage that a fire can cause if it does happen. The assessment will also reduce the chance of death or injury to residents, employees and the general public in the event of a fire. The assessment will also reduce the chance of a fire spreading to adjacent buildings. You also need to have a fire risk assessment as it is a legal requirement for all buildings.
What Is a Fire Risk Assessment?
A fire risk assessment is a report which provides a detailed and comprehensive listing of fire risks which are easy to understand. The findings in the report will be summarised in an Executive Summary and the major concerns will be listed in a separate section. An action plan will also be included to assist you with the creation and implementation of a safety plan. The report will satisfy all regulatory requirements and will be accepted for any insurance purposes.
What Are the Key Points That the Assessment Covers?
There are 5 key points that the assessment will cover:
- Identify the fire hazards
- Identify people at risk
- Evaluate, remove, reduce and protect from risk
- Record, plan, inform, instruct and train (if required)
- Review regularly
