Since the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, commercial premises owners have had a legal responsibility to provide:

     a)   Fire safety training for all staff

     b)   A recorded fire risk assessment


Failure to comply with this legislation could ultimately result in prosecution.


The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005  is a statutory instrument applicable in England and Wales. The Order places the responsibility on individuals within an organisation to carry out risk assessments to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire. The Order was made into law on 7th June 2005 and came into force on 1st October 2006.
