Guidance about completing a fire risk assessment for offices and shops

To download the guide click here:

This guide gives advice about completing a fire safety risk assessment for all employers, managers, occupiers and owners of premises where the main use of the building (or part of the building) is an office or shop including:

  • purpose-built or converted office blocks
  • individual office or shop units which are part of other complexes (eg a shopping centre)

The guide does not apply for the overall management of multi-use shopping areas. Use the risk assessment guide for large places of assembly instead.

The law does not apply to offices in private domestic accommodation.
