Blake's 4 Step Fire Risk Assessment Formula

Date: 2 May 2022

Aaaand, breathe!

Learning how to conduct a Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) for your business is frustrating and confusing. We know!

Although the Government guides are vague and leave a lot open to interpretation, it's critical you understand and follow the legislation. The wrong advice could put your business on the wrong side of the law.

Here's what you can do:

  1. Close the 14 tabs of conflicting advice articles on your browser
  2. Make a cuppa
  3. Get comfy
  4. Soak up Blake's 4 step Fire Risk Assessment Formula for busy businesses owners!


Step 1 - Watch this 5 minute video

The first step to our Fire Risk Assessment Formula is to watch this video from the Fire Industry Association.

In 5 minutes they sum up:

  • Your duty as the Responsible Person
  • Things to consider if you are conducting your own Fire Risk Assessment
  • How to choose a third party to do it for you
  • The consequences if your business is non-compliant with the law

Now you know the basics and the things you need to evaluate during your Fire Risk Assessment...

Step 2 - Write it down!!

What good is the FIA's professional advice if it's going in one ear and out the other!

Take out a notepad and jot it down. This can act as a checklist if you are conducting the assessment yourself.

To save time, some of the most important points can be found in a bullet point list in this blog post.

Additionally, a quick Google search for "Fire Risk Assessment templates" can bring up some useful print-outs for you to tick off as you go.

Step 3 - Read this blog post

This post outlines how to carry out and follow up on your FRA the right way.

Your FRA is a means to an end, not an end in itself!

Businesses can slip up if risks are highlighted but not followed up on properly. The cost? Unlimited fines or, if the worst should happen, a prison sentence!

Our post helps you to nail down your follow-up process and choose the right people for the job.
