New Fire Regulations - Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order

 

Fire safety law changed in October 2006. The new law:

bullet

Emphasises preventing fires and reducing risk

bullet

Makes it your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and in the immediate vicinity

bullet

Does away with the need for fire certificates

 

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order requires that all premises must have:

bullet

A Responsible Person – this is either the employer, occupier or owner of the building who must carry out a fire risk assessment, provide adequate ‘general fire precautions’, consider the safety of all relevant persons, record both the significant findings and the control measures taken and provide adequate training for staff.

bullet

A Competent Person – who must have “Sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities to properly assist in undertaking the prevention and protection measures”. This person will assist the responsible person to fulfill his/her duties (it is possible to have a ‘competent responsible person’). If there are not any suitable candidates for the role of competent person, then third-party assistance is advised.

bullet

A Risk Assessment for the premises.

 For further information on the reform order go to the Communities and Local Government's website
