Fire Risk Assessments are now a legal requirement for all businesses in the UK. The law changed in 2006 and all employers are now obliged to assess the risk of fire in their work premises and put in place measures to manage and minimise any risks identified. In essence, the law applies to and assigns liability to any person who is responsible for or has a vested interest in all commercial businesses, shops, offices, care facilities, factories, warehouses, community halls, schools, pubs, restaurants, hostels, hotels and of course as listed above any person who is responsible for the common areas of multifamily housing units.

For most buildings, we would recommend that a competent person reviews your fire risk assessment at least every twelve months as a minimum to ensure any shortcomings are identified and put right on a regular basis and there may have been other changes to your building (for example a multi occupied building), that you are not aware of that could have an impact on the fire safety within your building.

To keep your family and co-workers safe from fire, you need to concentrate on four areas namely; identification of fire hazards, evaluating the people at risk, examining and removing these fire hazards and making a review of these risks from time to time.

Proper training is required to ensure that not only does the fire warden know what must be done in the case of an emergency, but that he or she actually does it. Training usually requires only about a day, but the investment for your business is immeasurable.
