Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessment & Audit

A fire risk assessment is a systematic and critical evaluation of your premises and the activities carried on there for the purpose of determining the likelihood of a fire occurring and causing harm to people on and around the premises. Its purpose is to identify what action you need to take to prevent a fire from occurring and what action you need to take to ensure the safety of people on and around the premises if a fire does occur.

Section 18(2) of The Fire Services Acts 1981 & 2003 imposes a statutory duty of care on persons having control over a premises to which the public is admitted to take all reasonable measures to guard against the outbreak of fire and to prepare and provide appropriate fire safety procedures for ensuring the safety of persons on the premises.

It is impossible to prepare and provide fire safety procedures that are "appropriate" to the premises without undertaking a systematic and critical evaluation of the hazards and risks that are particular to the premises. A fire risk assessment and audit is, therefore, the essential starting point for the proactive fire safety management and risk-proportionate fire precautions required by Section 18(2).

FAQ: Is a FRA the same as an occupational risk assessment?

A fire risk assessment required under Section 18(2) and Section 18(6)(a) (as amended) of The Fire Services Acts 1981 & 2003 should not be confused with an occupational risk assessment required under Section 19 of The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. An occupational risk assessment covers fire risk assessment only in the context of safety and health in the workplace (typically process and storage risks). They are two entirely separate Acts. The requirements of The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 in regard to fire safety are given without prejudice to the Fire Services Acts 1981 & 2003, which is the primary fire safety law in Ireland.
