About this publication

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order imposes important duties and responsibilities for protection of people from fire in all premises other than private homes. The Fire Safety Order takes a broad view of responsibility and some may not realise they have legal responsibilities for fire protection. This accessible guide to fire prevention will help you get to grips with the Fire Safety Order, your role as a 'responsible person' (or quasi-responsible person), how to implement the Order in your organisation and who can support you in this process.

Intended for duty holders including the employer and its directors, senior managers, property owners and occupiers in the public and private sectors, this book is also for those who influence decisions such as fire and rescue authorities and local authorities (the 'enforcing bodies') as well as fire inspectors, fire risk assessors and product manufacturers.
The book comprises seven chapters in two sections. The first section is essential background information, including a whistle-stop tour of RRFSO’s mechanics. The second section looks in more detail at what you should do in practice, structured to make sense to a business manager.

The book highlights the important duties and responsibilities imposed on you by the RRFSO, and explains how third parties can help you to discharge those duties. Wherever useful, the book lists sources of further information. It touches briefly on some of the technical aspects of passive fire protection but is not intended as a technical guide.
