Explaining Fire Safety Legislation

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in England and Wales on the 1st October 2006. It improves fire safety by placing the responsibility to reduce the risk of fire to people and buildings’ on the employer, or the ‘responsible person’ for that building.

The ‘responsible person’ for each building is required to carry out a fire risk assessment and take steps to reduce or remove any risks. The assessment should consider the effect a fire may have on anyone in or around the premises and needs reviewing regularly.
