Managing Fire Safety in Commercial Premises

If you are occupying business premises or the owner of a business premise you are required by law to ensure the safety of any person in the building in the event of fire or a hazardous emergency. Managing the fire safety equipment within a building is generally the responsibility of the tenant however this is not always the case. If you are a tenant, it is important to check your lease to see what your responsibilities are. Failing to comply with the law can result in penalties.
