What is the Fire Safety Order 2005?
- The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order affects all non domestic premises
- So whether you’re a small business with 2 or 3 staff or a large factory employing a 100 people, you will need to comply
- This legal requirement was brought in to replace over 118 previous Fire at Work statues, including fire certificates
- No longer is the Fire Service accountable for making the workplace safe
- That responsibility now lies with the Responsible Person (this is either a full time health and safety manager in a larger company or someone who as been appointed to take responsibility for fire safety in a smaller company) and they will be held accountable under the new Legalisation. Your local Fire and Rescue Authority will enforce the FSO either by desk-based means or a visit to your premises
- To comply with the Fire Safety Order 2005 it is a legal requirement to conduct a fire risk assessment
- Owners, Directors and Managing Agents could face imprisonment and/or personal prosecutions as a consequence of non-compliance
- You are also at risk of invalidating your insurance cover
