Fire risk assessments, you may not WANT one, but you NEED one by LAW.
Fire risk assessments are not the most exciting of purchases and, as a preventative measure, do not provide a company with an immediate visible boost from buying – meaning they can be low down on a business’ priority list. However, the assessments are vital and a necessary part of any company infrastructure. A fire risk assessment comes with many more subtle benefits which may not always be apparent, such as; Legal compliance, Education for staff, Confidence with insurance companies and more.
It is a legal requirement in the UK, for a Fire Risk Assessment to be conducted on all blocks of flats or business premises. If your company has 4 or more regular employees in the building, then the Fire Risk Assessment must also be documented. This can be carried out by a ‘responsible person’ but if done incorrectly, you could run afoul with the law. With fines for minor penalties up to £5,000, major penalties being unlimited £’s and up to 2 years in prison, it’s important the Fire Risk Assessment is carried out by the right person. Therefore, appointing an accredited assessor such as the ones at Infinite Fire & Security, removes the risk to you and ensures the assessment is carried out accurately, without legal repercussions for yourself.
