A basic guide to the legal requirement for fire risk assessment at places of work.
Every employer and every person in control of shared premises where there are commercial relationships has a responsibility to implement fire safety arrangements and procedures at those premises.
The basic requirement is that people can use the premises without risk of being trapped or injured by a fire. To identify what arrangements and procedures are appropriate to a building or workplace, the responsible person needs to complete a fire risk assessment for the premises. This in itself is a legal requirement in Ireland. If multiple employers occupy a building, their fire risk assessments will have interdependencies.
Every occupier and the landlord is required to co-operate and work together to ensure the safety of every person in the building in the event of a fire.
