From October 2006, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO), came into effect. This requires the responsible person (employer, occupier or owner) to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure safe escape for both employees and visitors.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order requires the responsible person to:
Ensure all employees are provided with adequate safety training at the time they are first employed and on being exposed to new and increased risks.
Appoint one or more ‘competent person’ to assist with fire safety in the workplace, and provide them with sufficient training to remain effective in reducing the risks from fire hazards.
The FSO applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupations.
The law applies to you if you are:
a charity or voluntary organisation a contractor with a degree of control over any premises providing accommodation for paying guests responsible for business premises an employer or self-employed with business premises responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
Under the FSO, the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.
