Did you know that as the employer of your company you are responsible for the fire risk assessment?
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 recognises you as the responsible person for your business and as such you will be held accountable. Fire safety starts with carrying out a fire risk assessment:
Points to consider:
The persons permitted on your property – how many, are they employees/members of the public or children? The building – its construction, combustibility, complexity and adherence to building regulations. Hazards – what are they, what risk do they present, how can their level of risk be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable? General fire precautions – fire alarm, fire-fighting equipment, means of escape, compartmentation, emergency lighting, signage and training Periodic review – the fire risk assessment should be reviewed periodically – dependent on changes and time scales. For those employers who have 5 or more employees, the risk assessment has to be formerly recorded, however, its good practice for all size companies to record their findings.
