Why is Fire Safety important?

Fire is the probably the biggest risk to life that most people face at work, with around 50 people being killed and over 2000 seriously injured every year. To minimise the risk of fire in the workplace, it is vital that everyone is aware of the common causes of fire and the appropriate actions to take in the event of a fire, including how to escape safely from the scene.

Fire Safety legislation

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety in England and Wales. Local fire and rescue authorities are responsible for enforcing this legislation in most premises. HSE has enforcement responsibility on construction sites, for nuclear premises, and on ships under construction or undergoing repair.

Under the order, anyone who has control of premises or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas or systems may be a ‘responsible person’ for example a manager/employer, owner or occupier for instance self-employed people. By law this person has to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace.
