Information on our Fire Risk Assessment Service

Over ninety percent of fires in Irish workplaces are attributed to human error. Furthermore, recent research shows that up to 80 percent of all businesses that experience a large fire never reopen. Fire can and does destroy, lives, business and even communities.

Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 an employer is required to carry out risk assessments including assessing the risks of fire. The Health and Safety Authority in Ireland (HSA) define a risk assessment as “a written document that records a three-step process: Identifying the hazards in the workplace(s) under your control. Then one has to assess the risks presented by these hazards and then putting control measures in place to reduce the risk of these hazards causing harm”.

Any worthwhile fire risk assessment of your premises must include fire prevention, fire detection and warning, and emergency escape and fire-fighting.

At Andrew Doyle Safety Consultants Limited, we undertake fire risk assessments on behalf of our clients in Dublin city and county and further afield with our nationwide service across Ireland. Having been in the health and safety business for almost two decades, we have assisted small, medium and large businesses and organisations with the development of their fire risk assessments.

Our Fire Risk Assessment is a comprehensive report which will give fire management guidance and enable a client to move forward in a positive and pro-active manner. It quickly and clearly identifies areas of compliance and of non-compliance, and offers solutions to those areas where improvement is needed to meet both best practice and current legislation.

Our Fire Risk Assessments are undertaken by our highly experienced and competent team of Fire Safety Consultants all members of the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE).

We would welcome the opportunity to submit a proposal covering the development of fire risk assessments for your organisation.
