Fire Training and Risk Assessment


Fire authorities will mainly be responsible for enforcing all fire safety legislation in non-domestic premises. They will carry out inspections at the premises that present the highest risk. All fire authorities will continue to look into complaints about fire safety, carry out investigations where poor fire safety management is discovered and may carry out targeted inspections.

Please note that the fire authority is still available to provide advice and will also work with you to achieve a practical level of fire safety.

A guide to who is responsible

If you are an employer, owner, landlord, business occupier or manage a property with paying guests then you are responsible for fire safety and are known as the "responsible person". As the responsible person it is your legal responsibility to comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

If you are the responsible person then you must:

  • Carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment.
  • Inform your staff and their representatives about the risks that have been identified.
  • Put in place, and maintain, adequate and appropriate fire safety measures to remove or reduce the risk to life.
  • Plan for an emergency.
  • Provide staff information, fire safety instruction and fire safety awareness training.
  • Ensuring your staff understand and know if installed where your emergency lighting systems are located. So, in the case of an emergency and the lighting going out, your staff will be able to navigate themselves to the nearest safe exit.

If you do not possess the necessary knowledge or skills to carry out the above legal requirements then you can pass the task to a competent person however, you are still legally responsible for meeting the order.
