  Fire Risk Assessment
  Fire precautions (Workplace) (amendment) regulations 1999 require all employees to carry out their fire risk assessment. One of the most serious health and safety risks too many organisations is the risk of fire - in 2000, 13,300 retail, industrial and catering establishments experienced fire resulting in unimaginable anguish for the owner, managers and the staff concerned with trying to stay in business.
Research has found that after a major fire, 43% of companies go out of business within 18 months, even if insured and 30% of companies fail within 3 years, never able to recover financially - many failed organisations are found to be underinsured!
Workplaces must comply, regardless of whether they have a fire certificate issued before the amendment under the fire precautions act 1971.

The health and safety executive advises that a competent person with sufficient training, experience and knowledge and other qualities, should carry out the assessment and the risks accurately identified in order to safeguard the safety of employees and if appropriate, members of the public.

Organisations of all sizes need to be vigilant and should take health and safety risk assessment seriously, especially in regard to fire, as failure to do so may be costly in terms of fines and possible imprisonment. From 1st December 1999 amendments to the fire precautions (workplace) regulations act 1997 require any business employing 5 or more persons to hold a written fire risk assessment and emergency plan. Failure to do so is a criminal offence. The local fire brigade can serve notices requiring compliance and also have the authority to close any building which does not meet this act.
