Fire Risk Assessments for Computershare

Computershare is the world's largest global share registry employing over 10,000 staff in 17 countries. They manage more than 100 million accounts for over 14,000 corporations.

A Fire Risk Assessment must be carried out in all non-domestic premises. Under the Fire Safety (Regulatory Reform) Order 2005 (in Scotland the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005), the "Responsible Person" must ensure compliance with the regulations. The assessment will identify risks that can be removed or reduced and will help decide the fire precautions that need to be taken.

The local Fire and rescue Authority will enforce the Order in most premises. Non-compliance can lead to prohibition notices and ultimately prosecution and fines. The Assessment must take account of all "relevant persons" including the public, contractors and the disabled. All "significant findings" should be recorded and a clearly prioritized "action plan" produced and acted upon.

The Order relates to all buildings and applies equally to charities, voluntary groups, churches, schools and paces of assembly. A series of 11 HMSO guides set out the requirements in all main sectors and contain practical steps that need to be takes to guarantee a safe and compliant workplace.

UK Fire Training has been providing Fire Risk Assessment services on a UK-wide basis for many years via our Assessor network. As well as smaller clients with single sites we offer a consistent approach to national contract customers.

We were asked to provide Fire Risk Assessments for all UK sites. We identified one of our most experienced consultants for the work. Prior to work commencing, we visited the client HQ and discussed their requirements in detail before drawing up a plan of action. They had specific needs relating to format and content of reports as well as the tailoring of the Fire Marshal courses.

During the process, we visited Edinburgh, Dublin, London, Cambridge and the Head Office site in Bristol. Sites ranged from smaller listed buildings to large purpose built offices housing over 1000 staff. Reports were produced for all sites in line with the BSI methodology, PAS79. In addition, staff at all sites received Fire Marshal training which took into account the relevant findings contained in the Fire Risk Assessments.

The assessment findings were then implemented and our consultant provided support and guidance at all stages. The assessment format allowed for consideration of policy, procedures and training / induction arrangements. They also looked in detail at fire hazards and risks and appropriate control measures.

Other UK Fire Training client groups include Art Galleries, Factories, Warehouses, Educational Establishments, Healthcare and Retail. In all cases the unique Fire Service background of our Assessors is fully utilised.
