At the time of writing, Kent Fire and Rescue Service had attended 3989 incidents in 2022, with more surely to come throughout the year. The risk of fire to any business cannot be underestimated. This is why fire risk assessment is so important and a legal requirement. The fire risk assessment Folkestone businesses look for has to meet legal requirements and provide the level of protection the business needs. Folkestone has a thriving business community and organisations owe it to their clients and employees to provide appropriate fire risk assessments.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 makes it law that all businesses must carry out a routine fire risk safety assessment. This assessment needs to be carried out by the premises’ “responsible person”. This is usually the employer, occupier or owner or they can ask a competent person to do it on their own behalf.
