Fire Risk Assessments

Fire Risk Assessment.

Fire risk assessments are required for healthcare premises by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on him by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

As well as protecting life, additional responsibilities include fire fighter safety, property and asset protection, continuity of service and protection of the environment.

In healthcare premises the potential fire risks may be extensive and varied requiring detailed knowledge of materials, equipment and processes likely to be present in the healthcare environment in order to make an appropriate assessment of the risks associated with such fire hazards.

Healthfire specialises in healthcare fire safety and is uniquely placed to provide a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks associated with healthcare premises.

With a detailed knowledge of the healthcare environment, Healthfire understands not only the fire hazards likely to be present and the potential risks to healthcare service users and staff, but also the operational issues associated with managing such hazards and risks.

Healthfire's client-focused approach results in a detailed assessment of fire risks combined with a holistic approach to the management and mitigation of risks identified.

Utilising our extensive experience in the healthcare environment and the management of fire safety, our reports readily identify the areas of greatest risk with a simple risk profile allowing targeted action to quickly reduce risk exposure.
