26 Jan Fire Risk Assessment – Fire protection for your business
Protect your business from fire with a Fire Risk Assessment
If you are a business owner or landlord, you are responsible for fire safety. When it comes to a fire risk assessment you are known as the “responsible person”. The fire safety order came in to effect in 2005. It applies also if you have paying guests for example if you run a bed and breakfast, guesthouse or a self catering property. As the ‘responsible person’ you must carry out a fire risk assessment of your premises and review it regularly. Risks need to be identified and appropriate fire safety measure put into place, such as; planning for emergencies, identifying people at risk, evaluate, remove or reduce the risks, providing staff with information and training in the event of a fire. These are just a few of the key points which need to be addressed as part of a fire risk assessment.
