Current UK law requires companies that employ five or more people to have an up-to-date fire risk assessment in place. This assessment should outline the safety measures which have been applied in the workplace to safeguard people and the property including fire doors and alarm systems. It is also good practice for those companies with less than five employees to have a fire safety protocol e.g.
- An employer with control of premises
- A managing agent or owner for shared parts of the building
- An occupier including as self-employed persons or voluntary organisation
- Any other person with control over part or all the premises.
