Fire safety law changed in October 2006 with the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The requirement for businesses to have fire certificates has been abolished and any previously held are no longer valid. Instead the law:

  • emphasises preventing fires and reducing risk
  • makes it your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and in the immediate vicinity

In England and Wales, the duties are imposed on the Responsible Person, who, in a workplace, is the employer, but, in premises that are not a workplace, is the person having control of the premises. The duty can also be imposed on other persons having control of the premises, such as managing agents.

We can carry out a fire risk assessment on your premises and identify the general fire precautions you need to have in place.
