UK FIRE SAFETY LEGISLATION (Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005)
The legislation introduced fundamental changes to the role of the fire & rescue service and places specific fire safety duties on persons having control of all building to which the public have access.
It is necessary for PERSONS HAVING CONTROL OF THE PREMISES to carry out a FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT and part of the risk assessment covers the provision of FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT. Regulations require the premises to be provided with appropriate fire fighting equipment. That such equipment be maintained in efficient working order and for persons to be nominated and trained in the use of such equipment.
