Fire risk assessments, fire safety training, fire safety management systems
All current fire safety legislation stems from the RRO (Regulatory Reform Order) published in 2005. The most important requirements of this legislation are as follows:
All fire risks must be assessed by a competent person and the results recorded in a written fire risk assessment.
Records must be kept to show that fire protection measures have been provided, properly maintained and are regularly inspected.
An Emergency (Evacuation) Action Plan has been written, confirmed and published.
Staff have received fire training in procedures to be undertaken in the event of fire.
Staff have received training in the use of any fire safety equipment provided.
Records are kept of the maintenance of such equipment.
Adequate means of fire detection, warning systems and escape routes are in place to allow people to leave the building safely.
Action plans have been formulated and signed off to indicate proposed completion dates and actual completion dates.
It is up to each individual organisation or property owner to appoint a suitably competent person to undertake the above tasks.
The legislation places a responsibility on those who own and/or manage buildings to ensure that fire safety legislation is adhered to. This legislation also dictates that all commercial premises, blocks of flats, HMOs (houses of mixed occupation), hospitals, care homes, educational establishments and government buildings are risk assessed on a regular basis.
