Business fire safety awareness tool

This is interactive tool is designed to help small business owners understand their legal duties for fire safety in the workplace.

This tool will give you a general overview of your responsibilities following a fire risk assessment on your premises. As you work your way around your workplace, correcting the identified issues and making it safer, you will be tested on your general fire safety knowledge.

Now test yourself and see what you already know.

Please note that this tool is for general fire safety awareness in the workplace, it is not intended as training tool for completing a Fire Risk Assessment.

This Fire Safety Awareness Tool was developed in collaboration between the National Fire Chiefs Council, Eyecademy and 925 Studios at Northampton University, with funding provided by the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Regulators Pioneer Fund.
