Fire Risk Assessments

On October 1st 2006 the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety 2005) Order became law in England and Wales. If you are the owner or landlord of a commercial property with 5 or more occupants, this law applies to you.

Failure to comply with the RRO can lead to hefty fines and even imprisonment. If you haven't conducted a fire risk assessment for your premises, the time to act is NOW.

  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRO) for England and Wales became law on 1st October 2006.
  • The Fire Precautions (Workplace) legislation 1997 and Amended 1999 are just two acts that are now superseded.
  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order is a risk based approach allowing more efficient, effective enforcement by the fire and rescue service and other enforcing authorities.
  • The reform creates one simple fire safety regime applying to all workplaces and other non-domestic premises.
  • The regime is risk assessment based with responsibility for the fire safety of the occupants of premises and people who might be affected by fire resting with a defined person.
