Fire Risk Assessment - Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005


The Order places the responsibility on individuals within an organisation to carry out risk assessments to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire. 

The fire risk assessment has five stages:

  • Identify the fire hazards.
  • Identify people at risk.
  • Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.
  • Record your findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training.
  • Review and update the fire risk assessment regularly


An employer can appoint an appropriate individual to carry out a risk assessment on behalf of the organisation as long as they are competent to do so.
