When do I need a fire risk assessment?
You should have regular checks made, in the same way a vehicle requires an annual MOT, your building should be no different.
An assessment should be carried out every 5 years but we recommend having annual checks to ensure ongoing safety requirements are met. Also, with an annual check, you can reduce larger unexpected costs if you leave things for 5 years.
If you have more than 5 people in your business premises then you MUST, by law, keep records of assessments. We help take care of this as part of our standard visit.
