Do I Need a Fire Risk Assessment?

Are you unsure if you need a fire risk assessment of your business or other non-domestic premises? Safety Advisors like to keep things simple. With this straight talking, informative blog, we answer all your questions.

Who is responsible for Fire Safety?

  • An employer
  • The owner
  • The landlord
  • An occupier
  • Anyone else with control of the premises, eg the facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor

Your Responsibilities

  • Carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly
  • Tell staff about the risks you have identified
  • Put appropriate fire safety measures in place & maintain them
  • Plan for an emergency
  • Provide staff with information, fire safety instructions and training.

As the responsible person you must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises. This assessment will identify what you need to do to prevent fire, mitigate the effects of a fire and keep employees and other people safe.

You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your organisation has 5 or more people.
