Fire Risk Assessments
The Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974 states that by law, employers are required to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of employees whilst at work. For Fire Safety, best practice starts with Fire Risk Assessment carried out by a professional risk assessor. The Government Guidelines for carrying out a thorough risk assessment of your business are as follows:
- Identify the fire hazards.
- Identify people at risk.
- Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.
- Record your findings to prepare an emergency plan and provide training.
- Review and update the fire risk assessment regularly.
Boden can guide you through this process to devise a comprehensive Fire Risk Assessment that is tailored to the specific requirements of your property.
