The introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in October 2006 has brought about many changes in the way fire
safety is managed within UK businesses.
The changes include:
- Removing the previous “fire certificate” regime.
emphasis on those in charge of non-domestic premises to assess the risk of a fire starting and spreading and implement appropriate
control measures and preventative actions.
- The appointment of a competent “Responsible Person” to organise and arrange for implementation
of suitable and sufficient control measures to address the risk associated with fire in any non-domestic setting.
measures necessary include:
- Preparing a Fire Risk Management Policy
- Clearly defined roles and responsibilities for those
in charge of a non-domestic premise.
- Appointment of fire wardens and provision of relevant training to enable them to discharge
their responsibilities safely and effectively.
- Providing suitable fire safety precautions and fire fighting provisions.
employees with fire safety awareness training and providing them with information regarding the correct action to take in the event
of a fire emergency at work.
- Liaising with all parties to ensure that fire safety matters which can affect adjoining premises are
clearly communicated to those who need such information.
Those in charge of non-domestic premises are required to demonstrate
compliance with the new legislation and must satisfy Fire Officers that suitable arrangements have been made to combat fire safety
risks. Although the requirement of a fire certificate has now gone, the Local Fire Authority will continue to enforce fire safety
legislation and will review building layouts and drawings as a part of building control approval.
