Why do I Need a Fire Risk Assessment?


In October 2006 a major change to fire safety legislation was enacted

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order; 2005 states that all employers: ‘must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed’

This means that it is compulsory for any work place to have a Fire Risk Assessment undertaken by a competent person. Periodically Officers from your local Fire Service may inspect your premises and audit the suitability of your fire safety arrangements

Our team of experienced and highly qualified Fire Risk Assessors will perform a full Fire Risk Assessment of your premises and provide you with a comprehensive document detailing any problems found and recommendations to minimise the risks

What will you get?

Your Fire Risk Assessment pack will include:

  • A comprehensive but easy to understand Fire Risk Assessment
  • Prioritised action points
  • A Free template Fire Action notice
  • A Free Fire Safety Logbook

Where required we will also supply;

  • A Fire Emergency Plan
  • A written fire policy
  • Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) for disabled staff
  • Any other specific risk assessments you might require (such as training audits, arson prevention etc)
  • Floor-plan of the building

You will of course get the undivided attention and support of an experienced fire professional and the opportunity to discuss any aspect of your fire protection systems with us.

How Much Does a Fire Risk Assessment Cost?

Unicorn offers high quality Risk Assessments at a sensible price. Our fees start from as little as £249.00 (+VAT) but the cost will depend upon :

  • The size of the premises and the number of floors
  • Numbers employed
  • The nature and of the business
  • Special risks such as sleeping accommodation
  • Where you are located

What if the Fire Service Doesn’t Accept My Risk Assessment?

Our Fire Risk Assessors are all ex-Fire Safety Inspecting Officers so they have a pretty good idea of what the Fire Service will expect. But in the unlikely event of a dispute, we will either negotiate an amicable agreement with the Fire Authority on your behalf at no extra cost, or, we will refund your money!









Will We Keep You Waiting?

No, we will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible and normally we would make an appointment within ten working days. If you have an urgent problem - for example if you have been served an enforcement notice – Call us as early as possible and we will respond accordingly.

The risk assessment involves a site visit where we will need to gather initial information from you (around one to two hours) and thereafter we will conduct an inspection. How long that takes depends on the size and complexity of your premises.
Normally we would supply your report in five to ten working days but for the larger risks this could take a little longer.
