The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, in England and Wales and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 in Scotland, both came into force on 1st October 2006, fundamentally changing the way in which fire safety is legislated.
In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of a business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.
As the ‘responsible person’ you must:
- carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises
- inform staff or their representatives about the risks you may have identified
- put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures
- plan for an emergency
- provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training
Amongst other duties, the responsible person must ensure that premises are fitted with appropriate fire fighting equipment, fire detection and alarms. They must also ensure that any non-automatic fire fighting equipment is easily accessible, simple to use and indicated by signs.
