Fire Risk Assessment Services are a vital part of property management, especially in commercial and shared accommodation buildings. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that any commercial premises with more than 5 occupants, whether an office, shop, hotel, healthcare facility, flatted development, or shared accommodation such as HMO’s (Houses of Multiple Occupancy), must have a thorough Fire Risk Assessment carried out and be reviewed at regular intervals.

In order to be compliant with the order, Seraph can provide a Fire Risk Assessment service in Cardiff, Newport and Swansea to identify and reduce the risk of fire where required.


What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A fire risk assessment is a comprehensive review and covers a series of checks with an ‘audit’ designed to help identify fire hazards, assess fire preventative measures, rectify any issues with preventative & protective measures or inadequacies with equipment or procedures and helps to put an effective fire safety plan in place. It is based on relevant legislation, guidance, and associated codes of practice to ensure the building and its occupants are protected in so far as is reasonably practicable.

It is all about identifying and understanding the potential risks, then improving on any existing fire safety measures to keep people safe. The outcome communicates findings, ensures recommendations have been implemented and provides evidence of compliance if needed after a fire.


Who needs a Fire Risk Assessment? 

  • Business owners
  • Employers 
  • Landlords
  • Delegated property management agents
  • Individuals who maintain control of the property


The above would be classed as legally the “Responsible Persons” or “Duty Holders”. By law they are responsible for the fire safety of the premises and any relevant persons who may be lawfully on the premises or any person who may be in the immediate vicinity of the premises who is at risk from a fire on the premises. They are also responsible for having a fire safety plan in place so that people can quickly reach a place of safety.


How can Seraph help?

We can remove the stress of completing a Fire Risk Assessment by providing a Fire Risk Assessor. We will produce a fire risk assessment report which includes details of any significant findings, a clear and concise action plan detailing actions recommended, and a full assessment of any risk and hazardous areas in the building.

We ensure that recommendations are appropriate to the premises and business circumstances to effectively reduce, minimise or manage risks. Our assessments and recommendations are developed to ensure not only the safety of employees and others who may be affected by a fire on the premises but also protection to the premises and its contents.


Prices are set on the size of the property and start at £175+VAT.
