Answers to visitor FAQ
What is a fire risk assessment?
A fire risk assessment is a process by which any risks and fire hazards in your premises are pinpointed and from there, you can decide if further action is needed to reduce or control those risks.
A risk assessment should be carried out by an appropriately trained person with experience and knowledge of fire safety. A fire risk assessment in writing should be carried out on any premises with occupancy of more than 5 people.
What fire regulations do we need to know about?
Our News and Views page contains relevant fire safety regulations and legislative changes that you might find useful to read, but in the main, you must adhere to the terms of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
How do I undertake a fire safety risk assessment in my own smaller premises?
If you have premises that are not complicated and wish to nominate yourself or a colleague as the ‘responsible person’ required by law to take responsibility for the fire risk assessment, you might find some useful information on the government webpages relating to Fire Safety.
What areas does LWF cover?
LWF’s offices are in Surrey and many of our previous fire engineering projects and fire risk assessments have been for clients in Kent, Essex, Hertfordshire, London, and throughout the Home Counties. However, we have also worked on projects throughout the United Kingdom and welcome enquiries from any interested party.
