Employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise. Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimize the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire. The fire authorities are responsible for all matters relating to domestic fire risks and precautions. They deal with fire precautions, fire fighting equipment and means of escape. HSE only deals with fire risks arising from work activities in the workplace and all fire matters at construction and major hazard sites. Fire Warden Course in Gloucestershire.
