FAQ's

  • Who needs a fire risk assessment?

    If you own, manage or operate a building or business, you will need to comply with fire safety law. The main law is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, more commonly known as the RRO.

    The RRO applies to virtually all non-domestic buildings and it is your responsibility to make sure the workplace meets the required standards. Article 9 of the Order states that suitable and sufficient fire risk assessments must be carried out by a competent person.

  • Can I do it myself?

    Yes – you can perform your own fire risk assessment, however, the law states the assessment must be ‘suitable and sufficient’. This means it must be carried out by a competent person – somebody with sufficient training, qualifications and experience. The advantages to using external fire safety consultants are numerous:

    • Knowledge of the latest fire regulations and legislation
    • Competent person
      Saving time and money
    • Reduce risk of prosecution if something is missed by doing it yourself
    • Guaranteed provision of a suitable and sufficient assessment
    • Responsibility for the provision of a compliant assessment lies with the external consultancy
  • How can I know you're competent?

    Pyro Fire Services are third-party accredited to provide fire risk assessments, as a BAFE SP205 Certificated Organisation

    We undergo an annual audit with BAFE, this means our systems, reports, company and assessors are independently assessed and audited to ensure we meet the requirements of the BAFE life safety fire risk assessment competency scheme.

  • How often should I review my fire risk assessment?

    Once completed, fire risk assessments should become subject to regular review. It is recommended all fire risk assessments are reviewed annually, this has now become best practice within the industry. Although the legislation states ‘regularly’, you should also review the assessment following any significant change – this includes changes to the building layout, staff, occupancy, activities, legislation etc.

    The majority of our clients’ properties are assessed once a year.
