Heritage Fire Risk Assessments

- it’s a legal requirement to have a fire risk assessment, and to make sure it’s regularly reviewed and kept up to date.

General information on fire risk assessments can be found on our Fire Risk Assessments page, however heritage buildings have particular risks and limitations associated with them - old doors, hidden voids, poor compartmentalisation etc. For this reason we strongly recommend that your fire risk assessment is carried out by a Competent Person / Assessor with an understanding of fire safety within heritage buildings.

If your business or organisation is relatively small and you think your potential risks aren’t complex, it is possible to do it yourself, but we recommend you use the guidance on the GOV.UK website.
