The Facts

Any business that employs 5 or more people is required by law to have an up to date written Fire Risk Assessment.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 affects all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs).  More commonly known as the Fire Safety Order (FSO), it covers almost all fire safety related legislation.
The law applies to you if you are:

  • Responsible for business premises
  • An employer or self-employed with business premises
  • Responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
  • A charity or voluntary organisation
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • Providing accommodation for paying guests
  • If there is any kind of licence in force
