Fire Safety Requirements

The Fire Safety Order places responsibility on individuals within an organisation to carry out risk assessments to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire. The order draft was set out on the 7th of June 2005 and came into force on the 1st of October 2006. Communal areas of apartment blocks, maisonettes and houses of multiple occupancy (HMO’s) are also subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO).


Who does the Fire Safety Order 2005 apply to?

– A proprietor with business premises
– Individuals responsible for Fire Safety Policy (Ultimately Business Owners, Landlords)

– All charity and social impact organisations

– Providers of accommodation for paying guests

– Partial dwelling purely utilised for business purposes
- Contractors with strong control over buildings


The Fire Safety Order requires all individuals in charge to undertake a fire risk assessment and in turn execute and preserve a fire safety policy.
