What do you need to know about fire risk assessment surveys?
A fire risk assessment survey is an evaluation of your property in terms of fire and safety hazards, after which you will be given a prioritised action plan. If you are a business owner then you are legally required to have an assessment done according to the Fire Safety Order. By law an assessment of this kind must be carried out by a ‘competent person’, but this does not make this a DIY job. Check the qualifications and experience of your tradesman before making a hire. A tradesman may well have had experience as a fireman or they may also be part of a national tradesman’s organisation such as the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE). Quotes for the cost of a fire risk assessment survey can vary between £200 and £900. This is largely due to differences in location, though the highest quotes will come from national companies and manufacturers with very little to justify them beyond a brand name. Realistically you should expect to pay something in the middle of this range. You may even be able to have a risk assessment survey done free of charge by your local fire service. It is important that your final choice is adequately covered, especially with professional indemnity insurance for in case their assessment is sub par and leads to problems or costs down the line.
