who does fire risk assessments
about london city fire

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 have to work together to meet your responsibilities.

The Fire Safety Order also applies if you have paying guests, for example if you run a bed and breakfast, guesthouse or let a self-catering property.

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



Are you aware that if you are the Responsible Person (or Duty Holder in Scotland) you hold the ultimate responsibility for the adequacy of the company’s Fire Risk Assessment by law? You must also take reasonable steps when appointing an assessor to ensure that they have sufficient competency and experience..

Building owners, employers and operators have a responsibility under the Fire Safety Act 202 to ensure that employees and users of their properties are safe.

London City Fire can help you minimise dangers with Fire Risk Assessments within all types of premises including sleeping occupancies.

Help with the assessment
You can do the fire risk assessment yourself with the help of standard fire safety risk assessment guides.

If you don’t have the expertise or time to do the fire risk assessment yourself you need to appoint a ‘competent person’ to help, for example, a professional risk assessor.

You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people.
Mobility for Fire Safety

People with Mobility Needs

You should also make special arrangements in your planning and procedures for people with mobility needs, for example make sure there are people to help wheelchair users get downstairs if there’s a fire.

N.B. Staff involved in the escape plan should feel confident in their skills and disabled people should feel that they can trust the process.

Fire Detection and Warnings

You must have a fire detection and warning system. You may need different types of detectors, depending on the type of building and the work carried out in it but our team can help you assess and implement all the required plans and procedures.

You need to train new staff when they start work and tell all employees about any new fire risks.

You should carry out at least one fire drill per year and record the results. You must keep the results as part of your fire safety and evacuation plan.
