In the UK over 1000 people are injured each year, due to workplace fires.
Employers therefore must comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order which applies to England and Wales only.
The Order is designed to provide a minimum fire safety standard in non-domestic premises such as a fire risk assessment.
The fire risk assessment will aim to identify the potential causes of a fire in the workplace and establish controls to reduce the risk of a fire starting and reducing the risk of how it may affect people.
Employers are also required to ensure that their staff have suitable training. All staff should have some form of fire awareness training. In some workplaces there will be a requirement for trained fire marshals and in others more advanced training.
