Fire risk assessments

Regular Fire Risk Assessments must be carried out to ensure that buildings are safe. Owners and managers of the following building types are responsible for this:

  • tower blocks and apartments
  • public buildings
  • licensed premises
  • leisure buildings
  • hospitals, GP practices and nursing homes
  • care homes and sheltered housing
  • commercial offices, retail and distribution

Currently, anyone can carry out a Fire Risk Assessment. However, our team of Fire Risk Assessors are professionally qualified building control surveyors who have in-depth knowledge of the construction of buildings and an awareness of what should be consider within a building's fire strategy.

Their surveying background means that they are able to assess any changes to the structure and fabric of buildings and the impact these  will have on the fire strategy. For more information see the Related Documents section or contact us at building.control@leeds.gov.uk.
