Fire risk assessments

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) applies to most premises, other than single family dwellings, and in most cases it is enforced by the local fire and rescue authorities. It places the responsibility for fire safety on the ‘responsible person’ associated with the premises. This may be the owner, occupier, or employer; it is generally those people with any control over the premises.

We are able to provide a fire risk assessment service using independently accredited fire risk assessors, certified by the Warrington fire risk assessors certification scheme.

Further information and guidance is provided in the brochure and website links below. For all enquiries, please contact building control.

We can also offer advice on your emergency plan (evacuation of your premises in the case of fire) which is needed to ensure your occupants leave safely in an emergency.

There is a charge for this service.
