Current UK legislation requires most businesses to undertake a Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales. The
assessment needs to be handled by a competent person and it’s the responsibility of the employer to ensure that this happens.
In addition, if your company has 5 employees or more then you’ll need to put together a written FRA. If you don’t have internal competencies in fire risk assessments and the processes that you need to follow you can outsource the task to Blue Square Safety.
Complete your FRA with Blue Square
Our tailored approach to FRA’s ensure that consideration is given to the type of business that you’re in, the size of the business and to its unique circumstances.
We cover a range of industries, including:
- Hospitalitity, including hotels

At Blue Square Safety we work with you to complete your FRA. We’ll go through our proprietary questionnaire with you with the answers forming the basis of the FRA.
Together we’ll identify any obvious inadequacies that can be resolved straight away and those that need more work. Then we’ll weigh up the risks that each issue presents and how they can be managed as resolution is sought.
Blue Square Safety’s fire risk assessments cost from just £249.00 + VAT. Once we quote for you, the price is fixed.
Bonus: All bookings include online fire awareness training for up to 6 employees, with individual training log ins.
We strongly believe that educating your workforce and preparing them in risks to look out for is a measure worth taking.
In conducting the FRA we follow a framework that is in line with your legal requirements.
- Identification of potential fire hazards

In preparing your FRA we cover the following educational topics with you. These topics are also covered in the online training for your employees.

Another way to use the online training included in your FRA package is as a refresher for your competent person, depending on the size of the business and level of knowledge required.
Blue Square Safety can go a step further in helping you to ensure that precautions are taken on an ongoing basis. We work with you and your appointed competent person to ensure that the fire precautions are managed correctly and standards are maintained.
Reviews of the fire risk assessment can be scheduled regularly and updates may be made to processes and the written FRA.
Once complete you can book in for an appointment with your local fire and rescue authority to visit your premises to give you added security that the fire risk assessment and fire prevention measures are appropriate.
