If you’re an owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you’ll be responsible for fire safety. You’re known as the ‘responsible person’.
The Fire Safety Order also applies if you have paying guests, eg if you run a bed and breakfast, guesthouse or let a self-catering property.
As the responsible person you must:
- carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly.
- tell staff or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified.
- put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures.
- plan for an emergency.
As the responsible person you must carry out and regularly review a FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT of the premises. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe.
You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people. Provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training.
Carrying out the assessment:
- Identify the 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.
