Fire Risk Assessments for Businesses

The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 (FSA) and Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) apply to all business premises. It is a legal requirement for businesses and organisations to undertake Fire Risk Assessments in order to identify how to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire.

Types of Premises CSS Have Fire Risk Assessed

CSS has completed over 10,000 Fire Risk Assessments in Scotland since 1986 for a wide range of premises including:

  • Offices
  • Factories and Warehouses
  • Supermarkets, High Street Shops and Department Stores
  • Restaurants, Pubs and Cafes
  • Nightclubs

  • Medical and dental practices
  • Schools, Colleges and Universities
  • Nurseries and care homes
  • Sports centres and stadiums
  • Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples

It is vital to ensure that your Fire Risk Assessment is updated on a regular basis, ideally every 12 months. It is particularly important to do this if significant changes have been made to a premises or an organisation has increased its number of employees. It is also a requirement of some business insurance policies that regular Fire Risk Assessments are undertaken.
