If you own an industrial or commercial building in the UK you are legally required to undertake a Fire Risk Assessment.
A build-up of grease and oil in kitchen extract systems is the primary cause of rapidly spreading fires in UK commercial premises.
Legislation now places a much greater corporate responsibility and business risk on organisations in terms of the consequences of health and safety compliance failure, particularly where inadequately cleaned systems heighten the risk of fire and fire spread.
Insurers now require specific cleaning frequencies and proof of cleaning maintenance, failure to comply invalidates your insurance policy.
