The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety in England and Wales. Employers and/or building owners or occupiers of non-domestic premises must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep them up to date. The fire risk assessment can either be completed as a separate assessment or as part of your overall risk assessment for the premises. 

The responsibility for fire safety in many instances will be the employer, as part of these responsibilities you should provide and manage any:

  • Means of escape
  • Signs and notices
  • Emergency lighting
  • Fire alarms and detection equipment
  • Fire extinguishers and firefighting equipment
  • Fire doors and compartments

The person completing the assessment must be competent and capable in order to carry out their duties.

The findings of the assessment will determine what the employer needs to do to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place in order to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire. The assessment should also identify what could cause a fire to start, identification of any substances that burn and identify the people who may be at risk.
