Fire enforcement notices for breach of fire regulations on a high!

Fire enforcement notices

The number of Fire enforcement notices served in the month of April in London alone went up to 50.

Why are so many businesses getting in trouble with the fire authorities? Why are basic fire safety guidelines being ignored? Are your premises and your staff safe? Have you carried out a fire risk assessment recently? Do you know your responsibility towards fire safety and the regulations?

The Fire safety law in UK has changed. In October 2006 a new order came in force replacing over 70 pieces of fire safety laws.

What does that mean?

It means Fire certificates will no longer be issued to all but certain high-risk establishments. This has now been replaced with the requirement for fire safety risk assessment. Employers have become solely responsible for fire safety within their workplaces.

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, Staff Fire Training, Fire Warden Training and the provision of fire emergency plans and maintenance of adequate fire safety precautions. The companies identified responsible person would therefore take full corporate liability.

Who does it apply to?

  • All businesses which employ more than five people
  • All licensed premises
