I run a woodland with sawmill, a few tractors and 5 employees. We have a Diesel storage.

I was asked to carry out a fire risk assessment. do I just use a standard fire risk assessment form or is there special regulation for forestry?

The sawmill and not the woodland is subject to The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 , consequently you will be required to conduct a fire risk assessment for the sawmill. There is no such a thing as a standard fire risk assessment form and each premises is a bespoke situation. The appropriate guidance for a factory is https://www.gov.uk/workplace-fire-safety-your-responsibilities/fire-safety-advice-documents and you may need to consult the guide for offices.
