Fire Risk Assessments are now a legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Not having one in place could land you in hot water!
If you employ 5 or more people you should have a record of your assessment available, up to date and ready for inspection by an Enforcement Officer from the Fire and Rescue Service. Your Fire Risk Assessment forms a key part of your Fire Safety management and is a base for ensuring you are as safe as possible and have taken steps to control and reduce the risk of fire in your workplace.
Statistics show many buinesses struggle to recover from a fire and many fail shortly after. It is true to say many fires are caused by simple preventable circumstances which an effective Fire Risk Assessment could have helped to prevent.
