Fire Risk Assessment


The fire risk assessment training course designed to help learners understand their responsibilities for fire safety and implement measures to control the risk of a fire in the workplace. Learners will learn how to incorporate fire risk assessment into their ongoing management procedures.

Whether you are a small or large organisation, fire and its consequences pose a serious and significant risk to your business. The message from the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) and the fire authority is clear – the management of fire safety falls to the responsible person (e.g. an employer, a manager, a landlord or tenant, a charity or voluntary organisation). 

Under the RRO the responsible person must ensure that a ‘suitable and sufficient’ fire risk assessment for each of its premises has been carried out by a competent person.
