Fire risk assessment

A fire risk assessment helps you identify all the fire hazards and risks in your premises.

You can then decide whether any risks identified are acceptable or whether you need to do something to reduce or control them.

A risk assessment should be carried out by someone who has had sufficient training, and has good experience or knowledge of fire safety.

There are five steps to carrying out a risk assessment.
