Requirement The   Regulatory   Reform   (Fire   Safety)   Order   2005   covers   general   fire   safety   in England   and   Wales.   In   the   majority   of   premises,   local   fire   and   rescue   authorities are responsible for enforcing this fire safety legislation. Employers   (and/or   building   owners   or   occupiers)   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. 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,   the   risk   assessment   should   identify   what could   cause   a   fire   to   start,   and   substances   that   burn,   and   the   people   who   may   be at   risk.   Once   the   risks   are   identified   appropriate   action   to   control   them   must   be taken. Solution With   the   National   Examination   Board   in   Occupational   Safety   and   Health   NEBOSH National   Certificate   in   Fire   Safety   and   Risk   Management   AHSS   is   able   to   provide consultancy on fire safety.

Risk Assessments

Requirement Employers   (and/or   building   owners   or   occupiers)   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. Many   organisations   have   a   fire   risk   assessment   completed   annually.   If   there   are any   material   changes   to   the   structure   or   other   aspects   of   the   business   a   review must take place. Solution A risk assessment completed by AHSS will follow the PAS 79:2012 (Publicly Available Specification) which gives guidance and corresponding examples of documentation for undertaking, and recording the significant findings of, fire risk assessments in premises and parts of premises for which fire risk assessments are required by legislation. The methodology is intended to provide a structured approach to fire risk assessment for people with knowledge of the principles of fire safety. This recommended approach to carrying out fire risk assessments is intended to determine the risk-proportionate fire precautions required to protect premises occupants including employees, contractors, visitors and members of the public and to protect people in the immediate vicinity of the premises.

Training

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005: Part 2, Article 2, Section 21 advises that the responsible person must ensure that the employees are provided with adequate safety training; 1. at the time when they are first employed; and 2. on their being exposed to new or increased risks because of; their being transferred or given a change of responsibilities within the responsible person’s undertaking; the introduction of new work equipment into, or a change respecting work equipment already in use within, the responsible person’s undertaking; the introduction of new technology into the responsible person’s undertaking; or the introduction of a new system of work into, or a change respecting a system of work already in use within, the responsible person’s undertaking. The training referred to above must; 1. include suitable and sufficient instruction and training on the appropriate precautions and actions to be taken by the employee in order to safeguard himself and other relevant persons on the premises; 2. be repeated periodically where appropriate; 3. be adapted to take account of any new or changed risks to the safety of the employees concerned; 4. be provided in a manner appropriate to the risk identified by the risk assessment; and 5. take place during working hours.
