Unsure where to start? You're in the right place. 

If you have been told you need a fire risk assessment and are not sure where to start, here’s everything you need to know.

6 steps to help you get started

A fire risk assessment is like an MOT for your building. But instead of focusing getting a pass or fail, see it as an overall risk rating based on the likelihood of fire, and the potential consequence. The list of actions provided is there to help you continuously improve upon to better protect your buildings and people from the risk of fire.

1 Identify the need for a fire risk assessment

A fire risk assessment is a legal requirement. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment to be completed by a competent person.

We’re known for our responsiveness, with market leading turnaround times. Simply fill out your details on our contact form and we’ll send you a quote.

3 Get your building assessed

Once you’ve approved the quote. One of our nationwide assessors will come to your building and complete a fire risk assessment for you. This may take a few hours depending on the building size.

4 What we assess

We meet the person responsible for fire safety and review your documentation, procedures and testing records. Our assessor will then assess the building to identify fire hazards and fire precautions.

5 Review your fire risk report

We send your fire risk report via Block7. Here you can view and download the reports, mark risks as actioned, upload documentation, assign tasks to team members, create progress reports, view KPIs and more.

Our team is on hand to help with your building compliance every step of the way. We’ll remind you when your next assessment is due. If there’s anything you’re unsure about just ask.

“Very knowledgable risk assessor, who had thorough practical experience too from the fire service. Professional approach and was clearly confident in a school setting. The communication from Pyro was excellent, keeping us informed of when reviews were due and maintaining the online Block 7 which is fantastic to keep up with fire actions. We’ve employed them to help keep us compliant in all our academies and they are certainly our top supplier.”

“I have presently had two different sets of plans arranged and organised by Pyro Fire. The first, a fire evacuation plan for a 2 story office block inside a 210000 sq foot warehouse was completed and finalised within days. Very professional looking drawing, but easy for laymen to read and understand. Highly recommend.”

“The team at Pyro supported us with our Fire Risk Assessment of our office in Doncaster. Without a doubt, the most efficient and friendly team of people. They made the process straight forward and answered all of our questions with ease. We'll be using Pyro again in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
