Do I need a Fire Risk Assessment?                         What the law says....

The law says you must take appropriate action to meet the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 which require that employers must adopt a proactive role in the fire safety of their employees and the workplace. Key to this legislation is the requirement that all places of work have a Fire Risk Assessment carried out by a competent person. Where there are five or more employees, the Assessment must be in writing. The penalty imposed by a Crown Court for non-compliance is up to two years' imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine or both.
