Fire Risk

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 England and Wales

The Order is designed to provide a minimum fire safety standard in most non domestic premises.
If it is a workplace it designates the employer the Responsible Person .
If it is not a workplace then any person having control can be designated the Responsible Person.
They are required to carry out certain fire safety duties which include ensuring the general fire precautions are satisfactory and conducting a fire risk assessment.
If five or more persons are employed it has to be a written fire risk assessment.

Those carrying out a fire risk assessment must be satisfied that they are able to:

  • Identify the fire hazards (i.e. potential causes of fire)
  • Identify people at risk
  • Evaluate fire safety measures provided to protect people (e.g. escape routes and fire alarm systems)
  • Review the arrangements for management of fire safety (e.g. fire procedures, staff training and fire drills, maintenance of fire precautions, etc.)
  • Formulate an action plan
  • Record the significant findings and, if necessary, implement an action plan
  • Keep the assessment up to date.
