Fire Risk Assessments and PAS 79:2007

A key component of compliance with the Fire Safety Fire Safety Order is to undertake a Fire Safety Risk Assessment. All organisations with five or more employees must prepare a written document that identifies fire hazards and fire risk in their premises and must implement any recommendations to minimise and mitigate these risks.

Fire Risk AssessmentWhat We Do

We carry out a no obligation survey of your business premises and provide a report advising what is required to be compliant with the Fire Safety Order.

As part of the survey, we actually work out the fire load of your business premises. This is done by taking into consideration the size of premises and also the actual work process that takes place within your premises. By doing so we can work out how many extinguishers are required, which type of extinguishers are to be used in your premises and where they are to be located, all this is done in accordance to the standards laid down in BS 5306 Part 8.

We also look at existing fire extinguishers and carry out a report as what is required, such as basic service to discharge and refills, again in accordance to BS 5306 part 3. Following the survey, Seranco International is able to provide a full fire protection service:

  • Supply and installation of appropriate fire-fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers and fire blankets.
  • An annual maintenance program of fire-fighting equipment
  • Installation of fire safety signage
  • Staff training in the use of fire-fighting equipment and in fire prevention issues.

The Fire Risk Assessment is carried out in accordance to PAS 79:2007 (Publicly Available Specification). PAS 79:2007 is a nationally recognized document, published by the British Standards Institute, which gives a recommended methodology for undertaking and recording the significant findings of fire risk assessments in buildings to which the Fire Safety Order legislation applies.

In the Event of Fire

The Fire Safety Risk Assessment will, in the event of a fire, be used as a file of evidence, setting out proof that all adequate fire precaution had been undertaken. It can be used to prove that a specific fire occurrence was outside the scope of "fair and reasonable", based on the Fire Safety Risk Assessment.

With this evidence, an organisation can provide proof that ensures fire insurance is valid in any particular circumstances. Failure to carry out a fire risk assessment could result in (probably expensive) fire insurance being invalid and useless.

Seranco can conduct a Fire Safety Risk Assessment at your premises and provide you with complete piece of mind.
