Your legal obligations concerning Fire Safety
Did you know that if a business has 5+ people on site it is a legal requirement to have a fire risk assessment? A Fire Risk Assessment will do more than identify fire hazards and those at risk, it will calculate the risk of a fire, identify whether or not suitable means of alerting everyone of a potential fire are available, include maintenance regimes for fire-fighting equipment, fire alarms, lights and establish whether or not suitable means of escape from the premises are available and accessible.
It’s important to remember that failure to compile a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment may result in the Fire Authorities taking enforcement action on employers or owners of premises. So seeking help from DCL to put everything into place will keep everyone safe, legally compliant and give your business peace of mind.
