All businesses must have a Fire Risk assessment (criminal offence if not).
The Fire Brigade can enter a business at any time to check regulations as they are the enforcing body.
Six monthly fire evacuations must be carried out and logged.
Fire extinguishers should either be mounted 1 metre off the ground or held on a fire point stand and checked annually.
Please check the small print in your insurance policies as they may not pay out if proof of fire risk assessments are not in place.
