Fire safety law 2006
Fire safety law changed in October 2006. The law:
- Emphasises preventing fires and reducing risk
- Makes it your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and in the immediate vicinity
- Does away with the need for fire certificates
A set of guides has been developed to tell you what you have to do to comply with fire safety law, help you to carry out a fire risk assessment and identify the general fire precautions you need to have in place.
