Fire Safety and your responsibilities 

You’re responsible for fire safety in business or other non-domestic premises if you’re:
an employer
 the owner
the landlord
an occupier
anyone else with control of the premises, eg a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor

You’re known as the ‘responsible person’. If there’s more than one responsible person, you have to work together to meet your responsibilities. The Fire Safety Order also applies if you have paying guests, eg if you run a bed and breakfast, guesthouse or let a self-catering

Responsibilities

As the responsible person you must:
carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly
tell staff or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified
put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures
plan for an emergency
 provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training
