As part of a commitment to reduce death, injury and damage caused by fire, the Government has reviewed current fire safety law and is making a number of changes through the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) which will become law on 1st October 2006.Responsibility for complying with this new law will rest with a ‘responsible person’. This could be the employer, business owner or senior manager. If you don’t comply with the new regulations you could be prosecuted with the maximum penalty being 2 years in jail. The new law places a much greater emphasis on fire prevention and businesses need to be taking steps now to identify and deal with fire risks.
On Tuesday 14 November BRE and HCCI are hosting a seminar on the new fire legislation to help you. BRE’s fire experts work with Government and are at the forefront of all the changes to the fire safety law, and, with over 80 years experience, they are uniquely placed to advise you on what you have to do.
