Health & Safety North East can provide a comprehensive fire risk assessment service, from initial compliance visits and risk assessments, to providing relevant training for staff enabling them to manage fire risk and fire safety. This is of paramount importance, as having a fire risk assessment in place is a legal requirement for almost all business in the UK.
Here at Health and Safety North East, we don’t just provide training courses, we also advise businesses on their responsibilities according to law.
The key legislation all businesses should be aware of, is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It applies in all workplaces, excluding home offices, offshore workplaces, and work in the field, in the air or down a borehole.
The Order states that the 'Responsible Person' must undertake a Fire Risk Assessment. Additionally if an organisation employs five or more people, the findings of this assessment must be recorded, as evidence of completion.
A Responsible Person is defined by legislation almost always being the employer. However, if a building is shared with other organisations, the responsibility may be shared amongst several people.
