It is important to remember that Fire Risk Assessment is a continuous process and as such must be monitored and audited. New and existing control measures should be maintained to ensure that they are still working effectively. However, if you introduce changes into your workplace, your original risk assessment may not address any new hazards or risks arising from them. For this reason it is also important to review and revise your assessment regularly.
