Why would I need a fire safety self-check report?

To prevent a fire – and save the lives of our loved ones, other people, and ourselves as well as property and the environment.

Many buildings are legally obligated to prepare a report annually.

You can identify fire safety risks in your building in a timely manner and make a plan for rectification.

You will learn about aspects to consider when checking fire safety in your building as an owner.

Is it safe to use your building and can your people also feel safe?

Self-check means that we can basically control our own actions and behaviour. When ensuring fire safety, we as owners or managers of a building must make sure that our actions are safe and secure.

A fire safety self-check report is a legal obligation and a tool for many possessors of buildings. It offers insight into the safety and compliance of immovable property, buildings, premises, and devices in your possession.

The fire protection experts of Forus prepare hundreds of reports every year – for schools, industrial enterprises, and everything in between. A self-check report can only be prepared by specialists with professional certifications.

Please note that a fire safety self-check report must be submitted annually with the data of the previous calendar year by 31 March at the latest in the online service environment of the Estonian Rescue Board. Do not leave contacting a specialist to the last moment.

A fire safety self-check report includes:

  • fire safety arrangements in the company or institution
  • preparedness to act in case of a fire

  • other important information.

Self-check report – beneficial for everyone?

A possessor of a building must submit a fire safety report online or on paper to the Estonian Rescue Board once a year.

Please keep in mind that a fire safety self-check report is also useful to owners of buildings who are not legally obligated to prepare such reports. A thorough report prepared by us provides a very clear overview to the person responsible for fire safety of whether the building is safe and compliant with fire safety requirements.
