General Fire Training Workshop


Is your company covered under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order that came into force in October 2006?


This Order replaced all existing fire legislation. Fire certificates were abolished by the Order and it is now the legal responsibility of each company to take such fire precautions as may reasonably be required to ensure the work premises are safe.


Companies now have a legal duty to carry out a fire risk assessment on their premises and to conduct fire safety training for all employees.
