Fire hazards - persons at risk

One of the very first steps in completing your fire risk assessment is to identify who is potentially at risk from a fire. Use our persons at risk form to record your findings.

In context

All organisations with responsibility for non-domestic premises have a duty to carry out a fire risk assessment. This needs to be written down if the business has five or more employees. It’s a good idea to write down your fire risk assessment even if you have fewer employees. Our fire risk assessment forms enable you to tackle this task step by step, making it more manageable.

Who’s in the building?

Almost the first factor to consider as part of this process is exactly who is at risk from fire in the premises. To make it as easy as possible, you can use our Fire Hazards - Persons at Risk form for this purpose.
