The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force on the 1st October 2006. The regulation amends or replaces 118 pieces of legislation, the most significant being the Fire Precautions Act 1971 and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) (Amendment) Regulations 1999. The aim of the regulation is to rationalise and consolidate legislation into one simpler piece, leading to a safer workplace. It will apply to all workplaces in England and Wales. Workplaces within Scotland now fall under the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005.
The new legislation places the responsibility of fire safety on the employer or 'responsible person' for that premises or building.
The 'responsible person' will need to ensure that a fire risk assessment has been conducted to establish the risk of fire and then take steps to remove or reduce them.
Fire certificates, which were issued under the previous regulations, will be abolished and become invalid however inspections will still continue. Failure to comply with the new regulations may lead to legal action resulting in a fine or up to two years imprisonment.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Failure to comply with The Regulatory (Fire Safety) Order 2005 as highlighted above could lead to severe legal action. In order for premises to meet the requirements of the regulations:
Fire Risk Assessment
The responsible person for each workplace premises will be required to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment to establish the current risk of fire. These risks should then be acted upon to ensure that they are controlled to be either reduced or eliminated. This risk assessment should be regularly reviewed, especially if working procedures are changed or structural changes are made. It should also be reviewed if the responsible person suspects that the assessment is no longer valid.
The following checklist can be used as a guide to aid you with your fire risk assessment and where to find a solution to reduce the risk of fire:
Fire Fighting and Fire Detection
Emergency Escape Routes
Procedures for Serious and Imminent Danger and for Danger Areas
Provision of Information for Employees
Inspections and Enforcement
Inspections from the local fire authorities may be unannounced to inspect the premises, fire risk assessment and all fire safety records. Failure to meet the obligations of the Fire Safety Order could lead to legal action resulting in a heavy fine or up to two years imprisonment.
