UK School Fire Risk Assessment
Fire Queen provide comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments for schools and for all educational establishments including pre-school premises, Colleges and Universities. Whether you are responsible for fire safety in a small primary or large secondary school, It is important that a school fire risk assessment is carried out by fire safety experts that have experience of the educational sector.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect in October 2006 and replaced or combined over 100 existing pieces of fire safety legislation. This law applies to all non domestic premises including schools and colleges and places a duty of care on either or any combination of the Employer, the Occupier or the Owner as the Responsible Person whose duty it is to carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises, the risk of fire from the operations that are carried out in the premises and the people who work in the premises.
School premises, particularly in science and materials based learning environment, often are exposed to an advanced risk of fire and corresponding measures are required to be in place and form a key aspect of a school fire risk assessment. Fire risk assessments for schools must take into account the special circumstances that are a feature of risk assessments in school premises.
Outsourced Responsibility For School Fire Risk Assessment
Although best practice states that it would be better if the Competent Person is an employee, this legislation recognises the fact many small and medium sized schools do not have the resources in time or money to have an employee committed full time to this work. The fire risk legislation therefore allows for the appointment of third party assistance to complete the Fire Risk Assessment on behalf of the school.
Fire Queen have successfully carried out many Fire Risk Assessments and are members of the Fire Protection Association. Our schoolr fire risk assessemnt staff are qualified to CIEH Level 3 standard.
