Fire risk

In England and Wales new regulations introduced in October 2006 have replaced most existing fire safety legislation. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 affects all non-domestic premises and even applies to certain activities taking place outdoors. The Order places the emphasis towards risk reduction and fire prevention. Fire certificates will no longer be issued.

It is now compulsory for companies to conduct a fire risk assessment. As an employer, or as someone who has control of a workplace, you must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire.
