Kent businesses need to update their fire safety records and policy regularly. The fire safety report Kent businesses provide for their premises must be up to date and in line with the latest regulations. In addition, all companies in the UK must have a fire risk assessment and ensure this risk assessment is properly carried out.
Fire risk assessment is the cornerstone of fire protection for all businesses. It would help if you had an up-to-date risk assessment to comply with the law. Comprehensive fire safety report services ensure all your documentation is up-to-date and allow your business to operate compliantly. Let’s look more closely at what risk assessments must include.
Understanding your Fire Risk Assessment
Fire risk assessments must be written down if you have four or more employees. However, we also recommend keeping a written record regardless of this as it’s easier for future reference and provides peace of mind for your business. Fire risk assessments must be regularly reviewed, and they must be updated should the fire brigade issue an alterations notice. Fire risk assessment documents must record all the main findings during the assessment and include any actions that must be taken. The fire safety report Kent businesses put together can be a precursor to a full risk assessment or be a supporting document.
Choosing a Fire Safety Partner
It is not compulsory that you use a professional fire risk assessor for your fire safety reports and assessments. However, the person who carries out your risk assessments needs to be confident and able to carry out the following tasks:
- Correct identification of the potential causes of fire within the business
- Accurate identification of people at risk
- Full assessment of the suitability of fire safety measures in place such as fire alarms, extinguishers, and escape routes
- Full assessment of the fire safety management within the business such as drills and safety records
- Complete records of all findings
- The development of fire safety action plans to carry out necessary changes
- Commitment to regularly updating the risk assessment as per the law
