Fire Risk Assessments

By Law, You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people. The responsible person must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe.

Carrying out the Assessment

  • Identify the fire hazards.

  • Identify people at risk.

  • Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.

  • Record your findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training.

  • Review and update the fire risk assessment regularly.

  • You’ll need to consider:

  • Emergency routes and exits

  • Fire detection and warning systems

  • Fire fighting equipment

  • The removal or safe storage of dangerous substances

  • An emergency fire evacuation plan

  • The needs of vulnerable people, eg the elderly, young children or those with disabilities

  • Providing information to employees and other people on the premises

  • Staff fire safety training

  • Help with the assessment
