Section 18(2) of the Fire Services Act, 1981 & 2003 sets out the duties of the employer in ensuring that his or her workplace is safe. The act specifically states that "It shall be the duty of every person having control over premises to which this section applies to - (a) take all reasonable measures to guard against the outbreak of fire on such premises, (b) provide reasonable fire safety measures for such premises and prepare and provide appropriate fire safety procedures for ensuring the safety of persons on such premises, (c) ensure that the fire safety measures and procedures referred to in paragraph (b) are applied at all times, and (d) ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the safety of persons on the premises in the event of an outbreak of fire whether such outbreak has occurred or not."

Conducting a Fire Safety Audit which is an examination of your workplace and the relevant documents, will determine if your premises is meeting the standards as laid down by the Fire Services Act, 1981 & 2003, in addition to other appropriate statutory legislation and requirements.

Our fire audit entails a site visit and includes an examination of the existing fire safety management, the adequacy of current fire prevention, general levels of fire safety throughout the premises, means of escape, service records for extinguishers and other fire-fighting appliances, fire detection and alarm systems, levels of training along drills etc...

We would welcome the opportunity to submit a proposal concerning fire safety audits for your organisation.

Fire Safety Audit Information

What is a Fire Safety Audit?

A Fire Safety Audit provides a snapshot of fire safety compliance within the workplace. The Fire Safety Audit will specifically focus on areas of non compliance and provide a list of recommendations to address those areas of non compliance.

Who should undertake a Fire Safety Audit?

A Fire Safety Audit should be undertaken by an appropriately qualified person such as a Fire Engineer or Fire Consultant.

How long does a Fire Safety Audit take?

Depending on the size of the building and site, a Fire Audit can take from a couple of hours plus. The report is normally ready within 5-10 working days after the site visit. We do our best to accommodate urgent requests where they arise.

Who requires a Fire Safety Audit?

Every employer in Ireland has to legally manage fire safety. A Fire Safety Audit can be an effective tool in achieving this and provide crucial information pertaining to non compliance and necessary actions required to address these areas.

How often should an organisation carry out a Fire Safety Audit?

A Fire Safety Audit is an annual exercise for many organisations. Some clients utilise an audit once every several years and are happy once areas have been addressed. It depends on the complexity and level of risk pertaining to the workplace subject to the Fire Safety Audit.

What is the difference between a Fire Safety Audit and a Fire Risk Assessment?

A Fire Safety Audit will focus more on areas of non compliance than compliance and is a useful report / snag list for completing identified items. A Fire Risk Assessment on the other hand will focus on both areas of compliance and non compliance and can present a more balanced approach as it will share positive and negative observations, whilst a Fire Safety Audit will be very direct and to the point in relation to any short comings.
