a Fire Risk Assessment is a statutory requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (2005), and includes most commercial and public premises in the UK.
If you are the designated Responsible Person within your workplace or organisation, it is your obligation to ensure General Fire Precautions are comprehensively monitored and adhered to.
Part of the responsibilities included in this designation are Fire Risk Assessments. While there is no stipulation for official qualifications to fulfil these obligations, we understand this complex undertaking is something many businesses would prefer to have professionals handle.
All of our services can be engaged on an individual, ad-hoc basis, or alternatively can be provided as a comprehensive package bespoke to your requirements. Regardless of how simple or complex your Fire Risk Assessment needs are, our experienced and knowledgeable consultants are available to offer Fire Safety Risk Assessments, reviews, guidance and recommendations to help your organisation achieve its fire safety goals.

We are here to take the guesswork and confusion out of Fire Safety to help you be best placed to ensure the highest level of safety and compliance in your workplace, and for your employees.
It is the responsibility of the Responsible Person to ensure that sufficient training in fire safety has been provided for all staff.
The Responsible Person should also have fire safety arrangements in situ, with a clear evacuation plan available in the case of an emergency. This information – including procedures and plans – should be made readily available to all existing and new employees.
Importantly, it is also the duty of the Responsible Person to ensure there is appropriate, well-maintained, and correctly installed fire safety equipment throughout the building.
We understand that this scope is not always easy to undertake, nor in the remit of most employees. This is where our Fire Risk Assessments offer the most value; we help to create the correct processes and procedures after analysing your current framework, and help you to free up valuable time and resources by allowing professionals to handle this often complex undertaking.

Fire safety is an ongoing requirement. While there is no legislated frequency for conducting these assessments, they should ideally be conducted on an annual basis, or more frequently if there has been a significant change in the environment.
Adhering to this timeline ensures an easy demonstration of compliance in the case of a visit from HSE, and also ensures early identification of any potential risks in order for them to be addressed and rectified to prevent an unsafe environment.

Our work with Simon and Cate Walter at Rhino Safety Limited aimed to ensure that the Group was Health and Safety compliant with all aspects of Health & Safety legislation. We were therefore extremely pleased when Simon and his team implemented a Health & Safety programme which resulted in them undertaking all Risk Assessments and the Group being fully H & S compliant within 6 months.
It was great to actually talk to a company who has a common sense approach to health and safety and doesn’t make it into a scary experience!! They gave some great advice and tips whilst on site and was a pleasure working with them.
