Under Section 19 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) every employer shall identify hazards, assess risks and have a written risk assessment, including any unusual or other risks. To comply with Section 19, employers are required to carry out risk assessments and to record these in the Safety Statement. This legislation stipulates that all employers must carry out a full Fire Risk Assessment, thoroughly examining the potential risk and spread of fire in a commercial property. However, Fire Risk Assessments can be an extremely complex and confusing process and the detail that is required can be intricate and exhaustive. Here at Fire Safety Ireland, we can carry out your assessment for you, working to the highest possible standard and ensuring you comply with all your legal and contractual obligations.
The methodology we use is called “The 5 steps to Fire Risk assessment”
Step 1 Identify any fire hazards
Step 2 Identify who could be harmed
Step 3 Evaluate the risks
Step 4 Record the significant findings
Step 5 Review and revise assessment
Our dedicated team are fully trained and highly experienced and can select the most appropriate assessment process for your individual specifications and requirements. They can also advise you on any remedial action that needs to be taken following the results.
