It is a legal requirement for every employer and self-employed person to have an assessment of the health and safety risks which occur in the workplace. It is also important that it is kept up to date with any major changes which happen within the business which may cause new risks and hazards to arise.
A fire risk assessment identifies all the fire risks and hazards within your business. Any risks which are identified need to have a decision made on whether they are acceptable; or whether something needs to be done to reduce or eliminate the risk. A risk assessment should be carried out by someone who has good experience and knowledge of fire safety and has had sufficient training.
A fire risk assessment includes:
- Identifying all possible fire hazards
- Considering fire risks and reducing the fire hazards where possible
- Assessing the evacuation points and minimising the escape time if necessary
- Assessing the need for a fire detection and alarm system
