Requirements under Law
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) requires the ‘responsible person’ (employer, occupier or owner) to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure safe escape for both employees and visitors. The FSO requires the responsible person to:
Ensure all employees are provided with adequate safety training at the time they are first employed and on being exposed to new and increased risks.
Appoint one or more ‘competent persons’ to assist with fire safety in the workplace, and provide them with sufficient training to remain effective in reducing the risks from fire hazards.
Make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the fire risks in the workplace to which relevant persons are exposed, for the purpose of identifying general fire precautions.
Our recommended fire safety training courses will help your organisation comply with your duties under current fire safety legislation and protect both people on your premises from fire. All of our courses are delivered by highly qualified trainers who are current serving fire-fighters and officers with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in fire behaviour and fire safety.
