Understanding Fire Safety

FIRE SAFETY RESPONSIBILITY SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. PARTNER WITH CHURCHES FIRE TO UNDERSTAND THE FIRE SAFETY REGULATIONS FOR YOUR ORGANISATION

your responsibility

If you are an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or non-domestic premises, you could be legally responsible for the fire safety of your employees, customers, and anybody else who could be affected by a fire at your premises.

 

understanding fire safety

In England and Wales, all non-domestic premises are obliged to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. In Scotland, this legislation is governed by the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and in Northern Ireland by the Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006. The Responsible Person (known as the duty holder in Scotland and Northern Ireland), usually the employer or landlord, is personally liable for complying with this legislation. This responsibility involves:

  • Carrying out a fire risk assessment and reviewing it regularly
  • Telling staff about identified risks
  • Putting appropriate fire safety measures in place
  • Designing an emergency plan
  • Providing fire safety information and training for staff
