Question
Why do I need to consider fire safety/risk in my premises?
Answer
As an employer and provider of residential and nursing care you have a legal requirement to provide suitable and sufficient fire precautions for relevant persons within your premises. This includes: 
* Residents living in your premises 
* Your staff 
* Contractors and visitors 
 
Additionally, you must provide a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment of the premises.
