Support for Building Owners and Managers

Are you aware of your fire safety responsibilities?

You’re responsible for fire safety in business or other non-domestic premises if you’re:

· an employer
· the owner
· the landlord
· an occupier

· anyone else with control of the premises, for example, a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent, or risk assessor. 

You’re known as the ‘responsible person.’ If there’s more than one responsible person, you must work together to meet your responsibilities.

Responsibilities

As the responsible person, you must:

· carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly

· tell staff or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified

· put in place, and maintain appropriate fire safety measures

· plan for an emergency

· provide staff information, fire safety instruction, and training

We understand that taking on this role can be daunting, especially with ongoing legislation changes; there’s lots to be aware of.

We’ll work with you to assess exactly what fire systems you need to maintain compliance.
