Fire Risk Assessment
Each year over 40,000 fires occur in non-domestic buildings and over 69,000 fires in dwelling premises resulting in over 600 deaths each year as a result of fire.
Insurance claims top £1.1 billion each year and this does not take into account non-insured cost to businesses, which are far higher.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006 / Fire (Scotland) Act 2006 places a legal requirement on all building owners & employers to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment in their premises. It states that the employer must take into account for the safety of their employees the following matters:
- Means of fire detection
- Giving warning in case of fire
- The provision of means of escape
- Means of fighting fire
- The training of staff in fire safety
