Fire Safety Update

Fire Safety

We know how important it is to keep everyone safe and sound, especially in the care sector where the wellbeing of staff and those in your care is a top priority. So, staying up to date with fire safety is essential.

Do you know your roles and responsibilities as an employer? How to complete a fire risk assessment, and how often do you need to do one?

To make sure you are up to date and well informed we’ve summarised everything you need to know in this handy guide!

From 1 October last year, changes to the Fire Safety Order 2005 tweaked the role of the Responsible Person (RP) for workplaces. All workplaces need an up-to-date fire risk assessment, and your RP needs to be clear on their updated responsibilities.

And that’s not all. Fire safety, even without law changes, can be confusing enough for any business owner, especially in the context of care businesses where the vulnerability of clients adds complexity to compliance. Understanding fire safety regulations, implementing evacuation procedures, and conducting risk assessments can be overwhelming, but don’t worry! Our Partner Citation’s Health & Safety experts have whipped up a quick, Fire Safety 101 guide so you can be sure you’re keeping your people, your clients and your business safe.
