You should:

  1. Understand the relevant fire safety legislation and guidance
  2. Carry out a fire risk assessment and review it regularly
  3. Develop a business continuity plan

Fire alarms and sprinklers

You should also test your fire alarms regularly and consider fitting sprinklers where appropriate.
