Fire safety

Fire safety


Since the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect in October 2006, all businesses must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.

This will include identification of fire hazards, people at risk, existing fire prevention measures and actions required to further reduce the risk of fire. It is a legal requirement to fully document the findings of the Fire Risk Assessment and associated fire Action Plan.

In addition to a Fire Risk Assessment you also need to implement and record Fire Management Arrangements and Procedures which will include such items as:
  • Fire management policy
  • Fire management systems
  • Use of specialist fire system contractors
  • Fire system test and maintenance records
  • Fire reference documentation control
  • Emergency action plans (including evacuation)
  • Staff fire training
  • Fire management communication and fire drills.

The status and effectiveness of the fire risk assessment and applied fire risk management measures and controls requires constant review to keep pace with change and minimise the fire hazards and the risk of fire.
