Fire Certificate Training for Your Managers

Businesses in the UK need to follow the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005. The order was introduced in 2006 and it replaced many of the old fire safety laws. All commercial and non-domestic premises are covered by the order and all of the laws included apply to you if you are either:

  1. The owner of a business premises or are responsible for one
  2. You are an employer
  3. You are responsible for a part of a property used only for business
  4. You are a charity
  5. You're self-employed
  6. Put up paying guests
  7. Have a level of control over a premises as a contractor

Businesses need to be aware of fire safety and know how to reduce the risks, deal with problems effectively and know how to perform risk assessments which are required by law. If you are an employer, a manager or supervisor training is essential to make sure you are following the laws and applying sensible precautionary measures.
