Businesses operating in hospitality are legally required to have in place proportionate actions that guard against the risks of fire and which are intended to protect the wellbeing of staff and customers working on site.

The very nature of hospitality businesses make fire risks extremely dangerous. Our Fire Risk Assessments follow rigorous standards ensuring fire risks in your pub, hotel, restaurant or venues are minimised, and that your staff and guests can easily and quickly escape to safety.

Fire Risk Assessments Include:
  • Policy Development
  • Compliance paperwork
  • Full Risk Assessments
  • Staff Fire Safety Training
  • Evacuation Strategies
  • Exits & Signage
  • Periodic Auditing
  • Emergency Planning

The purpose of carrying out fire risk assessments is to audit your internal fire safety procedures whilst making sure that your measures to prevent fire risks occurring are all in order. Our aim is to support you in complying with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006.

Serious management failures resulting in a gross breach of duty of care could mean a company is found guilty of corporate manslaughter, its Board Members liable for fines and, in extreme cases, find themselves imprisoned.

A Venners Fire Risk Consultant will visit your premises to conduct your assessment, after which you will receive a report containing the audit as well as action plans and any advice you need in order to stay compliant and safe from prosecution.

“We have used Venners for many years and have always had total confidence when dealing with Health & Safety issues.”

Kevin Charity, Managing Director, The Coaching Inn Group

Businesses in hospitality must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise.

Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.

Your risk assessment should identify what could cause a fire to start and substances that burn, and the people who may be at risk.

Once you have identified the risks, you can take appropriate action to control them. Consider whether you can avoid them altogether or, if this is not possible, how you can reduce the risks and manage them. Also consider how you will protect people if there is a fire.
