The importance of a Fire Risk Assessment
It is a legal requirement for non-domestic buildings that accommodate more than five occupants to have conducted a Fire Risk Assessment. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that all businesses must regularly carry out suitable and sufficient fire risk assessments especially whenever significant changes have been made to premisses.
This should be a written record conducted by a suitably competent person, experienced and trained to carry out a comprehensive assessment to ensure your premises are adequately protected and compliment with current legislation.

The document contains building plans, detailing fire exits, evacuation routes, fire alarm points, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, water supplies etc. and describes how to manage fire safety to prevent a hazardous situation, or in the event of a fire protects the occupants and premises.
