A Fire Risk Assessment is a detailed inspection of the premises including measures to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire, and identify persons at risk.
The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 recommends the use of a risk assessment approach to identify fire hazards and those at risk and to remove or reduce the risk of those hazards causing harm. A Fire Risk Assessment helps to identify the fire safety measures and policies required to ensure the safety of the building inhabitants should a fire occur.
Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 places the onus of responsibility squarely on the responsible person. This may be an employer, landlord or any person who has the extent control over the building. As of October 2006, Fire Certificates are no longer a requirement and subsequently no longer have any legal status.
