Fire Regulations, Fire Certificates and Fire Regulation Updates from Means of Escape
The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, and regulations made under it, covers the provision of process fire precautions which are intended to prevent the outbreak of a fire or minimise the consequences should one occur. The law requires the employer to carry out a fire risk assessment of the workplace, identify the significant findings of the risk assessment and the details of anyone who might be especially at risk in case of fire and provide and maintain such fire precautions as are necessary to safeguard those who use your workplace and provide information, instruction and training to employees about the fire precautions in your workplace.
