Do you have a Fire Risk Assessment and is it up to date?
On 1st October 2006 the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order became law in England and Wales.
If you are an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of a business or other non-domestic premises, you are responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.
As the responsible person there are certain things you must do by law under the Fire Safety Order, which is enforced by your local Fire and Rescue Service.
Under this legislation 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 on a regular basis 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.
All of our assessors have a fire service background.
