Fire safety is only one of many safety issues which management must address to minimise the risk of injury or death to staff or the public. Unlike most of the other safety concerns, fire has the potential to injure or kill large numbers of people very
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 replaces 118 pieces of previous fire legislation, including the old fire certificate. The law now shifts responsibility from the fire authorities for fire safety to whoever has day-to-day control of premises for example the duty holder or responsible person.
If you’re an employer, manager, occupier or owner of a business or other non-domestic premises, you’ll be responsible for fire safety. You’re known as the ‘responsible person’ or 'duty holder'.
