Fire Safety Gap Analysis


A fire can be a disastrous event, leading to the destruction of property or loss of life.


It is therefore essential that every business, company or organisation has an effective fire safety management plan in place.



Fire Safety Gap Analysis E-Mail:



There is a no one size fits all approach to managing fire safety and do not be misled into thinking that a Fire Risk Assessment alone will ensure that you meet your legal duties.


A Fire Risk Assessment is merely where fire safety management begins! 



Regulatory Compliance:

In the management of fire safety, Gap Analysis is the comparison of actual performance with potential or desired performance.


If a business, company or organisation does not make every effort to comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO), it may be subjected to enforcement action.


Gap Analysis uses the principles of fire safety benchmarking to identify regulatory shortfalls. Once the benchmarking expectation is identified, it is possible to compare that expectation with the current level of compliance. This comparison becomes the Gap Analysis. Such analysis can be performed at the strategic or operational level of a business, company or organisation.



Article 11 of the RRFSO clearly states that the ‘Responsible Person’ ('RP') must make and give effect to such arrangements as are appropriate for the effective planning, organising, control, monitoring and review of preventive and protective measures relating to fire.


AJM Fire Risk Assessment Services work closely with clients to ensure that all of their fire safety needs are met in the most cost effective and economic way.


The Solution:

AJM Fire Risk Assessment Services will identify gaps in your current fire safety compliance, by comparing existing fire safety provisions against applied enforcement criteria revealing the Planning Gap. This should represent a goal for fire safety activities in general and fire risk management strategies in particular.


AJM Fire Risk Assessment Services will provide a Fire Safety Gap Analysis Report designed to assist and guide you to plan a pathway to regulatory compliance.


The Result:

The Fire Safety Gap Analysis Report will identify any shortfalls in your existing fire risk management compliance documentation and records and will offer a pathway to compliance with the avoidance of any enforcement action.



Plan, Do, Check and Act Approach:


When advising and helping clients with several important aspects of fire safety management, AJM Fire Risk Assessment Services use the widely recognised Plan, Do, Check and Act approach.


By rigorously following this four-step process and treating this as a process for continuous improvement, you will be able to confirm that your legislative duties under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 are being met.


Benefits of Fire Safety Gap Analysis: 

Every business, company or organisation is legally obliged to follow current fire safety regulations, but not everyone has the in-house technical expertise or resources to employ a dedicated fire safety manager or fire safety officer.
While internal involvement is essential, the ability to work with external fire safety consultants like AJM Fire Risk Assessment Services on an ongoing basis will ease the workload on employers and the ‘Responsible Person’ ('RP') significantly.
