Fire Training Legislation

For premises that hold a Fire Certificate, details of staff training may be specified.  Staff training may also be required under the Fire Precautions (Work Place) Regulations (1997, amended 1999).  A Fire Risk Assessment will detail the exact training employers are obliged to provide by law.

In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.  (The rules are different in Scotland and Northern Ireland – please ring us for specific advice).

As the ‘responsible person’ you are required by law (Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to:

  • carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises
  • tell staff and/or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified
  • put in place, and maintain, adequate and appropriate fire safety measures to remove or reduce the risk to life
  • plan for an emergency
  • provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training

You could get fined and/or go to prison if you don’t follow fire safety regulations. Minor penalties can be up to £5,000. Major penalties can have unlimited fines and up to 2 years in prison.

If you need advice on your training responsibilities then please give us a call.
