The Importance of Fire Safety

Did you know failure to comply with fire safety legislation could result in you going to prison? Non-compliance can have detrimental effects. So, why take the risk?

Read on to learn how to stop a fire costing lives and ensure you avoid substantial fines.

Why is fire safety compliance important? As an employer, building owner or occupier, you have a duty of care and must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up-to-date. A fire risk assessment highlights potential risks and improves your fire safety precautions to keep employees and visitors safe.

Article 9 (1) of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that:

“The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on him by or under this Order.”

The legislation reinforces why fire safety compliance is so important.

Our NEBOSHH certified consultants can help you maintain compliance with government legislation and create a fire risk assessment plan bespoke for your company and employees.
