Fire Safety Law

What is the fire safety law?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is the law that covers general fire safety in England and Wales.

In Scotland, requirements on general fire safety are covered in Part 3 of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, supported by the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

As an employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) you're known as the ‘responsible person' and you must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise.

Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.

To help prevent fire in the workplace, your assessment should identify what could cause a fire to start, ie sources of ignition (heat or sparks) and substances that burn, and the people who may be at risk.

For in-depth information on the fire safety law please read the HSE page and the government's fire safety law and guidance documents for business pages.

As the responsible person you must:

  • carry out an assessment of the premises and review it regularly

  • tell staff or their representatives about the risks you've identified

  • put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures

  • plan for an emergency

  • provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training
