“Are you up to scratch with your Fire Risk Assessment?”
Operate from a building that is not a single private dwelling in England and Wales?
Then a fire risk assessment is a must.
This includes shops, offices, factories, pubs, common areas of flats…even scout huts!
What’s more, if you employ 5 or more persons, are licensed under any enactment or have an Alterations Notice on the building, you must keep a written record of the significant findings of the fire risk assessment and any persons especially at risk. This must be available for inspection by the Local Authority, should they wish to view it.
This may sound daunting, but in reality, with the right guidance, it’s very straight forward.
