Fire Risk Assessments

If you are an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises you are responsible for fire safety. You will be described in law as the Responsible Person.

Premises classed as non-domestic are:

  • all workplaces and commercial premises
  • all premises the public have access to
  • the common areas of multi-occupied residential buildings

As the ‘responsible person’ you are required to carry out some important fire safety requirements.

  • complete and regularly review a fire risk assessment
  • tell staff and/or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified
  • put in place, and maintain, adequate and appropriate fire safety measures
  • plan for an emergency
  • provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training

Everyone by law must complete a fire risk assessment for their business. If your business has 5 or more people it’s also necessary to keep a written record of your fire risk assessment on file.

We can provide help and support with everything you need to meet your legal responsibilities.
