Employer -Landlord - Owner - Occupier - Business - Non-domestic

In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, landlord, owner or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you are responsible for fire safety assessments and safety. There are certain things you must do by law under the Fire Safety Order, which is enforced by your local fire and rescue authority. The Fire Safety Order also applies if you have paying guests, such as if you run a bed and breakfast, guest house or let self-catering property. You could get fined and/or go to prison if you don’t follow these fire safety regulations.

For your business must:

  • Tell staff and/or their representatives about the risks you have identified
  • Carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises
  • Put in place, and maintain, adequate and appropriate fire safety measures to remove or reduce the risk to life
  • Plan for all emergency’s
  • Provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training

The ‘responsible person’ must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe. You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people.
