Fire safety legislation applies to all commercial premises and other buildings to which the public have access. It does not apply to private residential premises.
Each year people die or are seriously injured as a result of fires in the workplace. Fire costs UK business millions of pounds, from loss of business, damage to property, compensation payments, fines and insurance premiums. All workplaces, commercial premises, all premises the public have access to and the common parts of multi-occupied residential buildings must have a fire safety risk assessment carried out. Typically the employer, owner or occupier of the premises is responsible for fire safety and in law they are known as the 'responsible person'. The responsible person must carry out or arrange for a risk assessment of the premises. They must also implement and maintain appropriate and adequate fire safety measures to minimise the risk to life from fire.

Who can carry out a Fire Risk Assessment?
If you are the responsible person you must make sure that fire risks are removed, reduced or managed to an acceptable level to reasonably protect lives. You must also ensure that everyone who may be in, or in the vicinity of, your premises can escape if there is a fire. You can appoint someone other than yourself - known as a 'competent person' - to carry out the risk assessment for you, but in law you remain responsible for complying with fire safety legislation. In smaller and less complex premises you may decide to carry out the risk assessment yourself but you may need to get more complex premises assessed by a person who has comprehensive training and experience in fire risk assessment.
