Fire risk assessments & extinguishers Northampton


You can’t be fully compliant with fire safety regulations until you have had an assessment of your risks. That’s why we offer professional services for businesses in Northampton and the surrounding areas, ensuring that you stay safe and compliant with the latest legislation.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that a ‘Responsible Person’ must carry out an assessment for fire risk. This responsibility falls to the Managing Director, Head Teacher, or Business Owner as they have been appointed by their respective organisation’s senior management team.

The order requires individuals with management responsibility to take action to protect lives from dangerous fires and rightly so.

Fire risk assessment law applies in:

  • Commercial offices and retail outlets
  • hospitals and medical care facilities
  • community facilities
  • pubs, restaurants & other hospitality venues
  • schools and nurseries
  • commercial tents and marquees
  • hotels and accommodation facilities
  • industrial premises like factories.
  • bed and breakfast, guesthouse & self-catering properties.
  • multiple occupancy residences (HMO’S)

The Law is not applicable in people’s private homes.

What is included in the assessment?

  • Identification of the fire hazards within the premises
  • Identification of the risk of fire and the people who will be at risk in the event of an incident
  • Evaluation of the risks and consider the best ways to remove or reduce the risks. This includes the identification of fire detection and warning systems, commercial fire extinguishers and fire blankets, and the removal or safe storage of hazardous substances. The assessment will consider escape routes and exits and how emergency services would be alerted in the event of an incident. The needs of vulnerable people, including senior citizens, young children or those with disabilities must also be considered.
  • A record of your findings and preparation of an emergency plan. Providing information to employees and other site personnel and the provision of fire safety training for your staff.
  • Your fire risk assessment should be regularly reviewed and updated. It must take into consideration any changes to the premises themselves, plus staff and any other occupants
