FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT 

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. 
 
You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people. 
 
Carrying out the assessments 
 
1. Identify the fire hazards. 
2. Identify people at risk. 
3. Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks. 
4. Record your findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training. 
5. 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 
 
The responsible person can do the fire risk assessment themselves with the help of standard guides
 
If you don’t have the expertise or time to do the fire risk assessment yourself you’ll need to appoint a ‘competent person’ to help, eg a professional risk assessor. LET US HELP YOU!
