Building Fire Risk Assessment
View Fire Risk Assessments
The Fire Risk Assessment process is the foundation on which Fire Safety Management at UCL is based. UCL staff, students and contractors can view UCL fire risk assessments via riskNET. We would encourage you to read the relevant Fire Risk Assessments for buildings that you frequently use.

Fire Risk Assessment review frequencies are dictated by the building fire risk category (Low Risk, Normal Risk, or Higher Risk), although each UCL building will receive at least one Fire Risk Assessment review annually.
TN_075 - Fire Risk Assessment Guidance
In accordance to the building risk category a Fire Risk Assessment is carried out within the below frequencies:
- Low Risk Buildings - Every 4 years
- Normal Risk Buildings - Every 3 years
- Higher Risk Buildings - Every 2 years
To find out what the fire risk category is for your building please either use the Fire Safety SharePoint site (UCL login required) or e-mail: email@example.com
UCL has two levels of fire risk assessment carried out by the UCL fire safety team:
- An annual review is a check that the fire risk assessment is up-to-date and that the means of escape are generally satisfactory;
- A Fire Risk Assessment is a full inspection of all areas of the building in line with their building Fire Risk Category (listed above).
