Before the Fire Officer calls, did you know...
If you are the 'Responsible Person-the Duty Holder' for Fire Safety compliance, YOU are LEGALLY OBLIGED to be in possession of an up to date, robust Fire Risk Assessment for your organisation underpinned, by an on-going Fire Management System.
Fire Risk Assessments for buildings other than dwelling houses
As an owner of a building (not covered by any other fire safety guide), you are the person who has legal responsibility for the fire safety in the building your employees work in and your customers/visitors/residents who visit your those premises. It is highly important that as a responsible person you are in charge of overseeing the safety of everyone in the building.
