It makes business sense to ensure proper insurance cover and the correct fire alarms, extinguishers and/or fire suppression equipment are in place. Install fire safes to store valuable documents and data backups. In some circumstances, you may also want an operational sprinkler system installed.

Fire Risk Assessments
All business premises must hold a current Fire Risk Assessment by law and it should be reviewed regularly in case changes to the building layout, occupation or use has changed materially affecting any fire safety measures or plan.
