The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires any person who has some level of control in premises to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire.
They are required to:
– Ensure that a fire risk assessment identifying the risks and hazards is carried out at the premises.
– Eliminate or reduce the risk from fire as far as is reasonably practical and provide suitable and sufficient fire precautions to deal with any residual risk; and create an emergency plan which sets out exactly what the emergency procedures for your premises will be should a fire-related incident occur.
