Home Fire Risk Assessments

Here at Hendeca we are entirely committed to keeping people and premises safe, whether through prevention, protection or helping to prepare people with a suitable response. We do this by evaluating premises to reduce risk and prevent fire, make recommendations to protect people and buildings and/or prepare staff how to respond to an emergency.

Our fire risk assessors have all had careers in business fire safety regulation and managing fire service incidents, and all have seen how fires affect people and businesses. They have also seen how good building design and well managed premises can reduce fire risk, by preventing fires or limiting the spread.  Therefore, they are so committed to sharing their knowledge and experience of business fire safety with you. 

Our assessors are all qualified to undertake fire risk assessments using the PAS 79 Code of Practice and they also have experience of working with Building Control and regulatory bodies.

If you are an employer, owner or manager of a business and you have a premises, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 means that you need to undertake a fire risk assessment. Designed to keep your employees, visitors, and any contractors safer from fire, it can also make your premises more resilient by integrating fire safety across your business operations.

The purpose of a fire risk assessment is to identify and reduce fire hazards. We assess your premises to identify people at risk, evaluate the situation and surroundings to remove or reduce the risks. We  record our observations and include recommendations for you to work with to make your business safer from fire.

We consider three main strategies to reduce and manage fire risk;

  • Preparation - fire hazard identification and risk mitigation measures
  • Fire prevention - fire safety management systems, and
  • Fire protection - including active systems (fire alarms) and passive systems (usually built into the fabric of the building to limit the spread of fire, heat and smoke)

Our professional approach to your assessment means we use existing Codes of Practice, British Standards, and technical guidance to deliver a risk proportionate set of recommendations.

Working with you, we can enhance the life safety and fire resilience of your premises, strengthen its sustainability, and deliver improved and inclusive life safety measures. All of which can add value to your business.

PAS 79-1 2020 Life safety fire risk assessments

Published by the British Standards Institution this Code of Practice sets out a framework for the assessment of fire risk which aims to protect the occupants of non-domestic premises; e.g. employees, contractors, visitors and members of the public. It provides the benchmark for a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment and is likely to be satisfactory to enforcing authorities.

We can provide you with a pragmatic, holistic and risk-proportionate assessment of your premises.

As part of the assessment, we will;

  • Obtain information on the building, the processes carried out in the building and the people present, or likely to be present in the building.
  • Identify the fire hazards and the means for their elimination or control
  • Determine the fire protection measures in the building
  • Obtain relevant information about fire safety management
  • Make an assessment of the fire risk
  • Formulate and document and action plan, and
  • Define the timeframe by which the fire assessment should be reviewed.
  • Once complete we will discuss the findings with you and any actions that need to be prioritised. Our support extends beyond the immediate fire risk assessment.

We can also review your current fire risk assessment.

Fire risk assessments are designed to be a living document and as such they cannot remain valid for an unlimited length of time. They should be reviewed periodically. We also offer an independent and impartial review service, at a reduced cost, which will depend upon the size and complexity of the premises.

We recommend that only two periodic reviews are completed before a new and complete fire risk assessment is carried out.

Prices start at £750 plus VAT for a full comprehensive report of a single structure, medium sized premises. Please complete the questionnaire to receive a fixed quotation
