Fire risk assessment

Fire Risk Assessments

UK Fire Regulations make you, the employer, responsible for fire safety within your business. You have a legal requirement to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment that looks at reducing and removing the risk of fire. This should be documented if you employ five or more people.

As a nationwide fire consultancy, Chubb can provide comprehensive Fire Risk Assessment services for single and multi‑site organisations. For a single site, click 'Order Now'. If you have multiple sites please contact us.

Fire Risk Assessments

Chubb's Fire Risk Assessment consultancy approach is ideally suited for medium to high risk workplaces, or where there are no suitably qualified, trained or experienced fire safety personnel within your organisation. With a national network of consultants, we are able to offer a comprehensive and consistent risk management service.

We employ only the most experienced professionals to deliver a consistent service nationwide:

  • Our consultants have all held senior ranking positions within the Fire & Rescue Service spending many years within fire safety and prevention.
  • All consultants hold a minimum qualification of Graduate Member of the Institution of Fire Engineers and provide objective, expert advice.
  • Consultants will draw on employee knowledge to help make your workplace safer and more compliant with current legislation.

Standard & Premium Fire Risk Assessments

  • Standard Fire Risk Assessment - suitable for low risk premises including single occupancy sites, shops and offices, places of worship, day schools and medical practices.
  • Premium Fire Risk Assessment - considers additional risks such as licensing requirements or premises storing flammable materials, sleeping accommodation, multi-occupied premises and complex buildings. Typical premises include multiple occupancy buildings, residential care homes, hotels, factories, hospitals, licensed premises and residential schools.

Fire Risk Assessment Renewals

Your Fire Risk Assessment must be reviewed and updated continuously to keep it a 'live' document. It should always be updated following any change in premises, processes or number of people employed, or if you have had a near miss or small fire. It is good practice to review it at intervals not exceeding 12 months.

The Chubb Fire Risk Assessment renewal service will provide a re‑assessment of your premises, an audit of last year’s action plan and an updated report and action plan.

Fire Safety in Commercial Kitchens

This course is designed for people working within a commercial kitchen, and focuses on the particular fire risks this environment presents.

Training held at customer location (minimum 15 delegates).
Suitable outdoor area required for practical demonstration.*

If you require off-site training, contact us at customer.training@chubb.co.uk

Course objectives

Delegates will gain an appreciation for good housekeeping, continuous attention within the workplace, sources of ignition, means of escape and action to be taken in the event of a fire. Because of cooking oil’s high auto ignition temperatures these fires are notoriously difficult to extinguish, and conventional extinguishers are simply not effective at dealing with this type of fire. For this reason this course focuses on a wet chemical extinguisher, a specialist extinguisher designed specifically to deal with cooking oil and fat fires as well as giving an understanding of automatic cooker hood extinguishing systems.

* Suitable outdoor area for practical session: 25m² of hard standing ground, at least 5m away from a buildings, parked vehicles, public areas, road traffic, water courses and trees. Classroom based training will still be possible if such a space is not available, but the practical session will be omitted.
