A fire risk assessment is a legal requirement for all commercial buildings as it is vital to ensure your property has adequate levels of protection from fire.
Fire legislation has changed meaning that you are now responsible for your fire risk assessments as well as ensuring your building meets the legal requirement in fire safety.
Following changes to the regulatory reform act of 2005, changes were made stating that the premises owner, or sole occupant in charge, is responsible for fire safety in the building and must ensure that their building is meeting the legal requirements. Should these not be met you are liable for the consequences should a fire occur within your building.
