Fire Risk Assessment Training
If you are the owner or employer of an office or shop, you are required by law to implement suitable fire safety measures. You must make sure your building is up to code before people visit it, or begin work in it. You should understand what duties you must fulfil to ensure your building meets suitable safety standards.

Understanding these is crucial to comply with legal requirements, to minimise the chance of a fire starting, and so people can evacuate your premises if necessary.
