Are Your Fire Safety Policies Legally Compliant?

Every business should have fire safety policies as an important part of their management system in order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. As a responsible employer it’s your duty to ensure that all of your fire safety policies are legally compliant to protect your business and your employees.

All fire safety policies prepared by ELAS are bespoke to your business and also adhere to the findings of your initial fire risk assessment. Upon completion, fire safety policies will need to be reviewed on regular basis. As a result of regularly reviewing your fire safety policies, you can ensure that your business remains legally compliant. It’s especially important to review your fire safety policy after any changes to the working environment. This includes moving premises, introducing new equipment to the workplace or if you are due to expand your work force.
