Who should use this guide?

This guide is for all employers, managers, occupiers and owners of small and medium places of assembly. It tells you what you have to do to comply with fire safety law, helps you to carry out a fire risk assessment and identify the general fire precautions you need to have in place.

This guide is intended for premises where the main use of the building or part of the building is as a small (i.e. premises accommodating up to 60 people) or a medium (i.e. premises accommodating up to 300 people) place of assembly. These include: public houses; clubs; dance halls/schools; village halls; community centres; churches; other places of religious worship or study and associated premises; temporary structures and marquees/tents.

The guide has been written to provide guidance for a responsible person, to help them to carry out a fire risk assessment in less complex premises. If you read the guide and decide that you are unable to apply the guidance, then you should seek expert advice from a competent person. More complex premises will probably need to be assessed by a person who has comprehensive training or experience in fire risk assessment. However, this guide can be used for multi-occupied buildings to address fire safety issues within their individual occupancies.

It may also be useful for:

  • employees;
  • employee-elected representatives;
  • trade union-appointed health and safety representatives;
  • enforcing authorities; and
  • all other people who have a role in ensuring fire safety in small and medium places of assembly.
