A summary of of the legislation
UK employers must carry out a fire risk assessment and remove or reduce the risk of fire.
Fire certificates are no longer issued
Each individual company is responsible for their own fire safety.
The employer must conduct a fire risk assessment regardless of the size of the risk. the identified responsible person would therefore take full corporate liability.
If five or more people are employed, the significant findings of the fire risk assessment must be documented.
The responsible person must ensure suitable fire precautions are available and maintained by a competent person.
Extended scope of consideration includes property safety, fire fighter safety and the environment around the site as well as just protecting life. This means that allowing a building to e sacrificed is unacceptable due to the risk to neighbouring buildings and fire fighters. The responsible person would have a duty to protect the fire brigade.
Unlike the Fire Precautions (workplace) Regulations, the Fire Safety Order places emphasis on business continuity and containing and preventing the spread of small fires.
Protection is explicitly extended to all occupants and not just employees, Visitors, Contractors or Passers-by also have to be considered in the risk assessment.
Fire fighters now have greater authority to gain entry to premises and remove samples after a fire.
