Fire safety risk assessment: forms and guidance

Guidance on completing a fire safety risk assessment for people responsible for non-domestic premises and houses of multiple occupation (HMO).

A fire risk assessment is a practical exercise aimed at evaluating:

  • the risk from fire in your premises
  • how fire might be prevented
  • how to ensure the safety of people in or around your premises if a fire does start

The outcome of an assessment must be acted on with appropriate fire safety measures put in place.

Assessments should be reviewed regularly.
