Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 In the first of our new feature blogs, we are providing you with a free guide on how to make your premises fire safe.  In up-coming blogs we will tackle subjects such as how many toilets you need for an office per person, to recommended lighting levels and would welcome suggestions for subjects that you would find useful.  The main rules under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 are that you must: •   carry out a fire-risk assessment identifying any possible dangers and risks; •   consider who may be especially at risk; •   get rid of or reduce the risk from fire as far as is reasonably possible and provide general fire precautions to deal with any possible risk left; •   take other measures to make sure there is protection if flammable or explosive materials are used or stored; •   create a plan to deal with any emergency and, in most cases, keep a record of your findings; •   review your findings when necessary. The person responsible for meeting this order is anyone who has control of premises or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas or systems may be a ‘responsible person’: •   the employer for those parts of premises staff may go to; •   the managing agent or owner for shared parts of premises or shared fire safety equipment such as fire-warning systems or sprinklers; •   the occupier, such as self-employed people or voluntary organisations if they have any control; or •   any other person who has some control over a part of the premises.   For full details on fire safety in the office, including how you meet the order and carry out a fire safety risk assessment, see: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/14879/making-your-premises-safe-short-guide.pdf   imagesevac   #FireSafety  #AskTheExpert  #RiskAssessment  #WorkplaceSafety
