What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of a business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 details what you have to do to comply with the law.

Your insurance provider will assume you are in compliance with the fire safety order when they give you a quote.

Your first task is to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment which identifies all the possible fire hazards in the work environment and details what prevention measures are required. The person who provides such a document should be “suitably qualified”.
