Employers (and/or building owners or landlords) are legally obliged to carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments.
Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire. To help prevent fire in the workplace, your fire risk assessment should identify what could cause a fire to start, i.e. sources of ignition (heat or sparks) and substances that burn, and the people who may be at risk.
Once you have identified the risks, you can take appropriate action to control them. Consider whether you can avoid them altogether or, if this is not possible, how you can reduce the risks and manage them. It’s vital that you consider how you will protect people if there is a fire.
