FRA (Fire Risk Assessment)

This assessment is performed in a facility, industrial or otherwise, with the primary objective of identifying (1) hazards and situations with the potential to cause fires; and (2) the individuals at risk. An FRA considers all protection systems and emergency plans to determine the level of residual risk, and if those levels lie within a safe zone. Also identified are any existing gaps; all aforementioned information is used to determine the requirements for reducing the probability of fire, and in turn, reducing its impact should one occur.

Pryxida TECH offers FRAs carried out by qualified personnel under NFPA 551 “Guide for the Evaluation Fire Risk Assessment” and related guidelines.
