Kent Fire and Rescue Services regularly publish reports into their performance. Sadly, there many examples of fires in business premises every year. While fires are an unfortunate accident a lot of the time, there are ways you can protect your business against the risk of fire.

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.
