Fire Legislation & Standards
Current Fire Legislation came in to effect on 1st of October 2006 across the UK, repealing all previous fire safety legislation.
- The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 – England and Wales
- The Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 – Scotland
A summary of the legislation:
- UK employers must carry out a fire risk assessment and remove or reduce the risk of fire
- Fire certificates are no longer issued
- Each individual company is responsible for their own fire safety
- The employer must conduct a fire risk assessment regardless of the size of the risk. The identified responsible person would therefore take full corporate liability.
- If five or more people are employed, the significant findings of the fire risk assessment must be documented
- The responsible person must ensure suitable fire precautions are available and maintained by a competent person
