What is fire risk assessment?
During 2015-16 there were 15,984 reported fires within businesses and educational establishments in England. Sadly, these resulted in 21 deaths.
A fire can destroy or seriously damage your business and in many cases cause it to permanently close.
Fire safety legislation is there to make sure you comply with the law. As part of this, you have a duty to carry out a 'fire risk assessment' to see that people in and around your business are kept safe.
