What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
A Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) is an organised review of potential fire hazards in a workplace, building or premises. The purpose of the assessment is to identify any potential risks and take necessary steps to reduce or eliminate them. It also involves evaluating the existing fire safety measures in place to ensure they are adequate. Fire Risk Assessments are often carried out by professional assessors or trained fire wardens who understand the laws and regulations relating to fire safety. The assessment should consider all aspects of fire safety, including the environment, procedures, equipment and personnel.
