Fire Risk Assessments have an important role to play in any Bucks-based business. Regular assessments ensure your company complies with current UK fire safety legislation, safeguarding your employees and visitors, and protecting your property against potential fire risks. It is your responsibility to ensure that Fire Risk Assessments in Buckinghamshire are carried out for your property. If your premises do not have a current assessment, you are at risk of serious legal consequences.

Who is legally responsible for Fire Risk Assessments?

Fire safety liability for your Buckinghamshire business falls to the person who is legally referred to as the ‘responsible person’. You are classed as the ‘responsible person’ if you are: the employer, the owner, the landlord, the occupier or anyone else with control of the premises, for example a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor. If there is more than one ‘responsible person’ they must work together to meet the requirements.

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 or the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006, it is the legal duty of the ‘responsible person’ to implement and maintain a fire management plan for each property, including:
