The Law & Regulation
To comply with the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 it is a legal requirement to conduct a fire risk assessment.
Under UK fire safety law, all employers must carry out a fire risk assessment that looks at removing and reducing the risk of fire.
Who does the Reform Fire Safety Order affect?
All of the authorised members of an organisation could face imprisonment and/or personal prosecutions as a consequence of non-compliance. You are also at risk of invalidating your insurance cover.
