Fire Risk Assessment
Under UK fire safety law, employers must carry out a fire risk assessment that looks at removing and reducing the risk of fire. Your Fire Risk Assessment should be reviewed and updated continuously to keep it a ‘live’ document. In particular, it should be updated following any change in premises, processes or the number of people employed, or if you’ve had a near miss or a real fire. It is good practice to review it at intervals not exceeding 12 months.
Completing a fire risk assessment is the first step to making your premises safer from fire and is a requirement by law, it involves an organised and methodical look at your premises, the activities carried out and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.
If your business employs five or more employees or has a licence you should keep a formal record of any significant findings and remedial measures which have, or may need to be, taken.
