Who is responsible when it comes to fire safety at work?

Q   What do YOU have to do?

In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises,  you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.

In accordance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all employees, whether full time or part time, must have fire awareness training. In the order, it states that ideally this training should take place on the day that employee commences employment.

  • The ‘responsible person’ 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.

You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people.

How often should fire safety training be provided?

Fire safety training should be continuous, commencing with induction training on the first day of appointment of new staff and continuing in the form of regular refresher training.

Fortunately we provide all your training requirements including FREE refresher courses.
