Risk Assessments

These are a legal requirement!

Is your venue or event safe from fire ?

Are you compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 ?

Along with all our other great services, Red Carpet now offer Fire Risk Assessments.

From full surveys to annual audits, all our Fire Risk Assessors have an average of 15 years operational experience. All have received training from the national fire service college in Gloucestershire or an approved Institute of Fire Engineers (IFE) course. The assessments can be carried out in a place of work other than those that are for events.

Fire Risk Assessments are a legal requirement for all UK businesses and organisations. If you employ five or more people it must be documented and available for inspection. The basic requirement is that each organisation must identify and nominate an individual as the 'responsible person'. That person's duty is then to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to eliminate the risk of fire on the premises. The responsibility is for all the individuals that work at the premises AND visitors.

Do I have to have a Fire Risk Assessment ?
Yes - The new law applies to EVERY business, and places a duty of care on the Employer, Occupier or Owner as the Responsible Person to appoint a Competent Person to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment of the premises. If your organisation employs five or more people or your premises are licensed or a Fire Service notice requiring it is in force, then significant findings of the Fire Risk Assessment must be recorded.

What if we don't have a competent person to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment ?
Don't panic - The law recognises that a lot of small and medium sized companies don't have the time or resources to carryout fire risk assessments. This means that the law will allow you to employ an external professional who is competent to carry out the risk assessment.

Will I be fully covered if I have a Fire Risk Assessment ?
Yes you will - Red Carpet Security will provide you with a detailed written report which will show that your company has complied with the law and will stand up to scrutiny.
