A fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical look at your premises, the activities carried on there and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.
Article 9 of the Order requires the responsible person to carry out a “suitable and sufficient” assessment of the risks on the premises.
What form the assessment takes will be dependent on the type and size of premises or undertaking concerned. What is suitable and sufficient for one premises will not be sufficient for another.
It will be for enforcing authorities to determine whether they consider that the risk assessment is suitable and sufficient, taking into account such factors as the nature of the building and the type of undertaking.
In each case the determining factor is likely to be whether fire hazards have been reasonably identified, risk reduction and mitigation carried out and residual risk appropriate protection measures (including management arrangements) implemented or proposed.

I attended the monthly meet yesterday and would like to thank you for one of the best, and most entertaining, sessions I have seen in a long while. It was most entertaining and extremely informative. I am sure I speak for many other safety professionals who, during their training, only get to read or be told about the fire triangle, flammable substances, and explosions. The session you delivered yesterday provided a fantastic insight into the subject and gave practical demonstrations of such things as LEL and UEL.
Just a quick note to say thank-you for your excellent presentation and demonstration yesterday - definitely provided the high impact that we were looking for in terms of a training / awareness event for the attendees. We will definitely be exploring opportunities to invite you back to reach a wider audience here on the Camp.
