It is a legal requirement to have a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment, many owners get prosecuted each year for simply not having one. Not having one however is only part of the story - it likely means the establishment is not prepared for a fire - extensive damage and loss of many lives is a very real consequence.
A fire risk assessment, fire management plan covering precautions, responsibilities and actions need to be in place. The Regulatory Reform Order (RRO), sometimes known as the Fire Reform Order, requires these document as well as staff training. It is important not only for your and your staffs safety that these are completed competently - you could find yourself on the wrong side of the law if they are not.
