Fire Safety Risk Assessments for commercial premises

The Fire Risk Assessment, required under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order, is an indirect opportunity to improve your business. By examining your premises and work practices, you might discover underused aspects of both. So, in addition to ensuring the safety of your staff, which you are legally obliged to do, you could improve your business’s productivity too.

Fire Risk Assessments for landlords

Landlords are required to obtain and keep Fire Safety Risk Assessments up to date. Some have been fined for putting their tenants at risk and not having adequate precautions, sometimes after a fire but also when there has been no fire. One landlord was fined more than £10,000 for not having the correct safety records.
