Welcome to JTA fire - for fire risk self assessments online.

At JTA fire we are driven in providing online fire risk assessments at a remarkably low price without compromising quality. For retail to light industrial, from offices to restaurants and everything in between.

Online FRA template designed for you

Our online tool uses the same format as that used by professional assessors, and we are making it available to you. All questions are straightforward and no specialist knowledge is required. Check out some actual FRAs here.

“There is no legal requirement for a FRA to be carried out by specialists, such as consultants. Indeed it can be advantageous for the responsible person to use guidance and carry out the fire risk assessment themselves. Their consequent understanding of the fire safety will enable them to manage fire safety better” - Colin Todd (consultant fire engineer and author of PAS79)

We provide guidance to complete FRA

We also believe that fire safety does not need to be complicated, and for many regular SME businesses, completing a fire risk assessment does not require expert knowledge. You can undertake your FRA with our common sense, step-by-step approach using criteria approved by the British Standards Institute. It’s a process used by fire risk assessors themselves. We have designed the template after 10 years of visiting hundreds of SMEs.

Highly cost-effective - less pressure on budgets

Our online assessment app is a highly cost-effective yet thorough solution to producing your fire risk assessment. Moreover quality is maintained by our unrivalled experience in helping businesses achieve fire safety.

We have designed templates for whatever type of business you are: offices, retail, purpose-built blocks of flats and light industrial. If you have a large or more complicated premises contact us and we can tailor your template or arrange an assessor to visit.

Set up an account and complete FRA in 45 minutes

Setting up an account is easy, and upon account confirmation you simply select the template for your business and purchase a credit.

Now you can begin the assessment - for a typical office or store it should take no more than 45 minutes.

If you get interrupted no problem - you can log off at any time and return to the report as your answers are saved on our secure servers.

Each completed section changes colour so you know where you are.

Total peace of mind - your FRA is verified by us

And to give you total peace of mind your assessment is verified by us, this includes the all important risk rating calculation. Any areas in need of clarification are quickly resolved and we sign off the assessment as suitable and sufficient. We even put our name on the assessment.

We are always here to help you

Having conducted hundreds of fire risk assessments since the fire safety order was passed in 2006, we have used our technical knowledge and experience to provide you the business owner the means to complete a fire risk assessment.

The law and your responsibilities

The Fire Safety Order 2005 now makes it law for all buildings to have a fire risk assessment (FRA). It has been law since October 2006. The Order applies to multi-occupied residential buildings and the common areas of flats. It does not apply to the flats themselves, although there are standards that should be achieved – see our residential section.

For residential housing there is the Housing Act 2004 which applies to rented accommodation. Under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRA) there are 29 hazards listed – one of which is fire. Our residential section deals with this in detail.
