What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of a business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 details what you have to do to comply with the law.

Your insurance provider will assume you are in compliance with the fire safety order when they give you a quote.

Your first task is to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment which identifies all the possible fire hazards in the work environment and details what prevention measures are required. The person who provides such a document should be “suitably qualified”.

Risk Assessment Legislation

In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.  (The rules are different in Scotland and Northern Ireland – please ring us for specific advice).

As the ‘responsible person’ you are required by law (Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to:

  • carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises
  • tell staff and/or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified
  • put in place, and maintain, adequate and appropriate fire safety measures to remove or reduce the risk to life
  • plan for an emergency
  • provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training

You could get fined and/or go to prison if you don’t follow fire safety regulations. Minor penalties can be up to £5,000. Major penalties can have unlimited fines and up to 2 years in prison.

Local fire and rescue authorities will inspect premises and can issue Fire Safety Notices telling you about changes you might need to make to your premises.  If they consider that your fire prevention measures are totally inadequate they may even restrict access to your business down until the issues are resolved.
