Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) employers are responsible for ensuring a Fire Risk Assessment is in place for all premises. The assessment must be suitable and sufficient and carried out with the assistance of a Competent Person, who has relevant training, experience and knowledge of Fire Safety. The assessment must also be reviewed regularly to reflect any changes or developments.
There have been several well publicised recent prosecutions where the assessment has been inadequate, or carried out by persons who are not competent to do so. It is therefore vital that employers seek competent advice and assistance when carrying out fire risk assessment.
