Fire Risk Assessment 

Schools are required to undertake fire risk assessments to identify general fire precautions needed to safeguard occupants in the school in case of a fire. Handsam provides a Fire Risk Assessment service that will ensure your school is fully compliant with fire safety regulations and allow you to keep a record of actions being delivered to evidence an audit trail and show diligence.

A fire risk assessment should be carried out on all types of buildings (excluding domestic residential property) to ensure compliance in England and Wales with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, in Scotland with The Fire Safety Regulations 2006 (Scotland), and in Northern Ireland with The Fire Safety Regulations 2010 (Northern Ireland).

What does a fire risk assessment involve?

A fire risk assessment covers a range of areas including:

  • Fire detection and warning system

  • Means of escape

  • Provision of fire-fighting equipment

  • Planning and training for an emergency

  • Identifying fire risk factors and the people at risk

  • Maintenance and testing of fire safety equipment
