Fire Risk Assessments

As the responsible person you must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe.

If you are responsible for a building, for example an employer, owner or occupier of a premises that isn't a private home, you need to make sure a suitably competent person completes a Fire Risk Assessment.

It is the duty of the 'Responsible Person'to take fire precautions 'as far as reasonably practicable' under the RRO Part 2 article 8 to ensure that fire safety is paramount in a premises and that a building is safe for all relevant persons

The Regulatory Reform (fire safety) Order 2005 (RRO) amends or replaces 118 pieces of legislation, the most significant being the repeal of the Fire Precautions Act 1971 and the revocation of Fire Precautions (workplace) Regulation 1997.

The RRO applies to the majority of premises and workplaces in the UK, and firmly places a responsibility on the ‘Responsible Person’.

The responsible person is required to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment, produce a policy, develop procedures, (particularly with regard to evacuation), provide staff training and carry out fire drills. They must also provide and maintain clear Means of Escape, Signs, Notices, Emergency Lighting, Fire Detection and Alarm and Extinguishers; it allows the Enforcing Authority to ensure it is enacted and sets penalties if it is not.
