Given the heat wave, I thought it would be apt to remind everyone that you are potentially responsible for fire safety of your premises and if you are not compliant, you could face prison not to mention the guilt of having put people’s lives at risk. You are a ‘responsible person’ ie legally responsible for others’ safety if:
- You are an owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises
- You have paying guests eg you run a B&B or let self-catering property
SO here is what to do in 5 easy steps:
Step 1:carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly. Keep a written record if your business has more than 5 people.
Step 3: put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures
Step 4: plan for an emergency
Step 5: provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training
Find out here how to make sure your premises are safe from fire. Now sit back and relax with a nice cool drink !
