Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessment – Did You Know?

The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 replace the previous fire safety legislation. The legislation places responsibilities on employers and any other person(s) with control of premises (duty holders) to assess the risk of harm from fire and to put in place appropriate fire safety measures.


The fire risk assessment is a process, not just a paper exercise or computer record, aimed at ensuring premises are safe from fire.

In certain circumstances, duty holders must record the significant findings of their fire safety risk assessment including fire safety measures that have or will be taken to ensure the safety of persons). Duty holders must also hold records on any persons identified as being especially at risk from fire on the premises.
