Fire Risk Assessment
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that all businesses have to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment and if you employ 5 or more staff it must be a written document. If you are the responsible person you must carry out the Fire Risk Assessment or seek a competent person to do this, this is where Red Hawk Training can help you.
