The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) 2005 (RRFSO) was introduced in October 2006 in England and Wales. The RRFSO consolidated and simplified the existing fire safety legislation, placing a greater emphasis on fire prevention. Businesses are now responsible for completing a fire risk assessment, replacing the fire certificates that were issued by the fire authority.

When is a fire risk assessment needed?

All non-domestic premises require a fire risk assessment.

A fire risk assessment is also required for the common areas of blocks of flats and houses in multiple Occupations (HMO’s).

Risk Assessment Testimonials

Andy has completed a Risk Assessment for Kinetic Studios for a project with the Forestry Commission.

The project is a photoshoot of mountain bikers in the Forest of Dean. The shoot involves skilled mountain bikers riding at speed over obstacles and jumps, and a crew including a photographer and assistants. Battery powered flashes and other camera equipment on tripods are also used. So, there were some high risk elements to the shoot.

The risk assessment Andy provided was thorough and comprehensive and went well beyond my expectations. It even highlighted some logistical and organisational issues that we had not considered ourselves.

If you need a risk assessment or advice on health and safety, I’d highly recommend you get in touch with Andy Rhoades from ABR Safety.
