Fire Safety Officer and Business Owner checking a fire extinguisherWhat every business needs to know

If you have a business, you have a legal duty to ensure that it is a safe environment for yourself and your staff, as well as customers, visitors, and anyone else that may enter your premises. This legal duty applies to both the employed and self-employed, and it also extends to charities and voluntary organisations.

We can also offer advice to ensure that the risk of fire in your workplace is minimised, and that the right precautions are made to ensure you meet the legal fire safety requirements.
