New guidance for small accommodation businesses

New fire safety guidance and regulations will come into force Sunday 1 October and are relevant for small accommodation businesses that take paying guests. Check if the new guidance applies to your business, and if so see below for some support on ensuring you meet the new regulations.

VisitEngland have support available, including a Fire Risk Assessment Template, which is fully compliant with the new regulations. They have also released a  free to watch webinar as well as other guidance and support.

The National Fire Chiefs Council provides a Guide to choosing a competent Fire Risk Assessor, which includes links to different professional associations.
