A fire risk assessment in Wigan is required by law for all businesses and apartment buildings. A fire risk assessment is a process whereby the surveyors will check the building and assess its weaknesses, determine fire hazards, and provide recommendations on how to make it safer for the employees and inhabitants. If your business building contains five or more people, it’s mandatory to carry out a fire risk assessment to reduce fire hazards and keep the people safe in the event of a fire. There are multiple factors to consider, including emergency routes and exits, fire-fighting equipment, emergency fire evacuation, as well as staff training.
For businesses in Wigan, a fire risk assessment can be carried out by yourself, but if you are not 100% sure how to go about it, you can get in touch with our team at H. Roberts & Son Ltd.
