Risk assessments are used to indentify potential fire hazards. They minimise the chance of people being harmed, and equipment and property at your business from being damaged. Once the likelihood of a hazard occuring has been assessed, and the potential damage and harm it can cause has been evaluated, measures can then be put in place to reduce, or remove these risks. Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales, it is a legal requirement for the "responsible person", whether that be the manager or owner of the premises, to cary out a fire risk assessment. If your business has 5 or more people, you are also required to keep a written record of your fire risk assessment.
