A fire risk assessment determines what you need to do to prevent fire, as well as what you need to do in the event of a fire. It is a legal requirement to have a written fire risk assessment if your business consists of more than five people, or if you rent out properties.
A fire risk assessment helps you to identify fire hazards, identify those at risk and determine what you need to do to reduce or remove any risks. It covers things like emergency routes and exits, fire detection systems, emergency evacuation plans, firefighting equipment and training.
Fire risk assessments should be reviewed once a year, to factor in any changes to your business like a change in employee numbers or change in business activity.
