    Your Legal Obligations for Commercial Fire Risk Assessments

    A commercial fire risk assessment is a legal requirement. If you are responsible for a non-private (home or dwelling) building as an employer, owner or occupier, it’s your duty to identify potential fire risks in your premises and take appropriate action. Those that ignore this responsibility can face unlimited fines or up to two years in prison. 

    • Identify fire hazards
    • Identify people at risk
    • Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks
    • Record your findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training
    • Review and update the fire risk assessment regularly
