Fire risk assessments

By law, the owners of all non-domestic buildings must carry out fire risk assessments.

We enforce fire safety laws in all non-domestic buildings in Lincolnshire.

We address complaints about fire safety. We undertake post-fire investigations if there is evidence of poor fire safety.

Where breaches occur, we provide practical advice or issue formal notices. If we believe there is a serious risk to life, we can prohibit or restrict the use of the building.
