The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 became law on 1st October 2006. All previous fire legislation has been revoked and all fire certificates are no longer valid. The legislation is "risk assessment" based which means that the responsible person must carry out a fire risk assessment covering all areas of fire safety including:

  • Elimination or reduction of ignition sources.
  • Raising the alarm in the event of fire and detection of fire.
  • Are the emergency escape routes and exits adequate and accessible at all times.
  • Correct number and type of extinguishers and provision for maintenance.
  • Correct number, type and size of fire signs and notices.
  • Suitable provision for protection of staff, visitors, passers-by and local authority fire service staff.
  • Staff training in all aspects of fire and fire procedures.

We are able to assist in the above by carrying out a full fire risk assessment on your behalf. This will ensure that your risk assessment conforms to the requirements of the enforcing body i.e, the local authority fire service.
