Fire Fisk Assessments are a crucial element for any business’s health and safety efforts. Not only are Fire Risk Assessments a legal requirement, but an assessment ensures measures are implemented for the long-term safety of both your staff and premises from potential fire damage.
A fire risk assessment is a detailed report to identify any potential fire risks.
Actions should be made to reduce incidents from occurring.
Ultimately fire safety legislation is there to protect life. Therefore, compliance is compulsory, and any business that chooses not to put in place appropriate fire safety measures is acting illegally. Suppose a fire accident occurs without having completed an appropriate fire risk assessment. In that case, the business may be subject to fines or, in the event of loss of life, even criminal charges.
