What is Fire Risk Assessment?
Fire risk assessment is a systematic process of identifying and evaluating potential fire hazards within a building, facility, or any other environment to reduce fire risk and ensure the safety of occupants and property. A fire risk assessment typically involves identifying potential ignition sources, fuel sources, and fire spread pathways. It also considers factors such as the occupancy type, building design and layout, and fire safety equipment and systems.
The Fire risk assessments are typically conducted by qualified fire safety professionals or consultants and are often required by local building codes and regulations to ensure compliance with fire safety standards.
Fire Risk Assessments: How long are they valid?
In static situations, the duration of a Fire Risk Assessment is determined by the property’s risk profile and the client’s risk management preferences. Typically, Green World Group advises a two-year Fire Risk Assessment period, although this may vary based on the facility being evaluated. For instance, a Fire Risk Assessment for a block of flats may extend to three or more years. Additionally, high-risk sites may require annual assessments.
