You have a legal responsibility to make sure your business and employees are protected from the dangers of fire.
In cases where a risk exists and it is not being managed, fire authorities have a statutory duty to enforce compliance with the regulations and they may serve a notice on you. In serious cases, prosecutions and fines can be imposed and a worst-case scenario is imprisonment.
Don’t risk the lives and wellbeing of your employees, visitors or the emergency services that may need to attend your site in the event of a fire. Avoid the serious disruption to your operations and the penalties, which could be imposed under the regulations if you fail to do so. https://www.firesafetyservices.co.uk/annual-fire-risk-assessment/
