If your organisation employs five or more people, your premises are licensed or an alterations notice is in force, it is necessary to carry out a fire risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan to comply with current legislation.
On all commercial premises there must be a "responsible person", who must carry out the provisions of fire safety regulations. In almost all cases, this is the employer and/or owner of the workplace or premises. Anybody who has any degree of control over the premises or a part of the premises can be designated a "responsible person".
The responsible person must make sufficient assessment of the risks posed to all people on the premises. This should identify potential sources of ignition (e.g. heaters, naked flames etc.), sources of fuel (e.g. display material, paper and fabric, stocked products, waste etc.), sources of oxygen (e.g. compressed gases, natural ventilation, forced air circulation etc.) It should identify the people at risk (e.g. those working near to fire hazards, those working alone or in isolated areas, children, parents, elderly, infirm and disabled people etc.)

Companies overlook fire safety at their peril. Not only can it endanger life, but it is an unfortunate fact that 40% of businesses do not recover from a serious fire.
It is therefore recommended that a Contingency Plan (Disaster recovery) be put together, in order to ensure a minimum of disruption to business.
The Fire Safety Order states all businesses must have a Responsible Person who has a duty of care to ensure the premises are safe for staff, clients/ customers, visitors, people with special needs and children. This person must be competent.
