Most fires are preventable.  The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that every non-domestic premises has a fire risk assessment.  Failure to comply with the legislation can result in a fine of up to £5,000, or imprisonment of the 'responsible person'; this is the owner or manager of the premises.  Carrying out a poor or inadequate fire risk assessment can put lives and property at risk as well as putting the responsible person on the wrong side of the law.  The Fire Risk Assessment should then be reviewed every year, and whenever a major change in the building layout or use has occurred.

Do I Need a Fire Risk Assessment?


Any premises which is a workplace, somewhere the public can access, and residential buildings with multiple occupants needs one.  You're responsible for fire safety in business or other non-domestic premises if you are the;

  • Employer

  • Landlord

  • Owner

  • Occupier

  • Anyone else with control of the premises; examples include building manager, managing agent or risk assessor

  • If you have paying guests

If you hire five or more people, then there needs to be a written record.  However, even if you have fewer employees you still need to be able to provide proof that a fire risk assessment has been carried out.
