A fire risk assessment is a document which demonstrates compliance with the legal obligation to identify risks and ensure that appropriate precautions are in place to prevent fire.
Use this fire risk assessment template to structure and record a fire risk. Fire safety law requires employers, managers, occupiers and owners of premises whose main use is an office, shop or other business to carry out and maintain a fire risk assessment. Its purpose is to prevent fires, reduce risk, and to ensure the safety of everyone who uses the premises or is in the immediate vicinity. Fire risk assessment in this form is not required where the business is carried on premises that are mainly domestic, for example, in a home office.
