Fire risk assessment is a matter of risk identification, risk assessment and risk control. Therefore, it is very important to ensure the safety of the building in good condition throughout the building especially in educational centers office. It is important to identify the fire hazard and the possible fire risk in our building. Thus, some of the case is conducted determine relative risks associated with the nature of the fire hazards that exist in the building in accordance with established standards and guidelines observed by expert panel and through literature review. The final objective of this research is tried to develop a quantitative fire risk assessment model based on collected data in a higher educational center office, Block A1 UTHM Pagoh Campus. The methodology of this study was conducted through two methods which were qualitative and quantitative. The qualitative method is through interviews with BOMBA Pagoh, UTHM Pagoh facility management as well as survey forms distributed to lecturers and students. This surveys data is running by Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS). Quantitative methods are based on the principles of Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and risk matrix. To analyze the data collected, Super Decision software is used where it helps to evaluate the probability of an accident. According to the order of priority, the final score calculated shows the risk assessment of fire safety can be determined based on the sum of the criterion scores. Further studies may be able to analyze the risks associated with the function of maximum fire temperature probability in the compartment in several types of buildings and appropriate measures to assess fire hazard risk.
