Fire Safety Qualifications
General fire safety in England and Wales is maintained through compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The legislation implements a risk-based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises. It requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment, implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures and to maintain a fire management plan. All members of staff have a role to play in fire safety and the fire safety qualifications support these various roles.
All individuals involved with fire safety must receive all the required information and training to deal with fire safety issues. The provision of these fire safety qualifications will assist your organisation in meeting their legal obligations as well as in providing a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
