Fire risk assessment

Most premises, other than people's private homes, must have a person responsible for carrying out and regularly reviewing a fire risk assessment of the premises. The assessment will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe. There are many variations and examples of Fire Risk Assessment available today. Some need to be purchased while others are free.

The link below contains example Fire Risk Assessments that you can use to record your assessment of the risk from fire and your findings – so you can remove or reduce this risk to a level that can be deemed reasonably practicable.
