Fire Risk Assessment guides

Fire safety law changed in October 2006 with the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The requirement for businesses to have fire certificates has been abolished and any previously held are no longer valid.

Instead, the law:

  • Emphasises the prevention of fires and reduction of risk
  • Makes it your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and those in the immediate vicinity

The following risk assessment guides will help you determine which risk assessment is right for your business.
