Who's responsible


If you’re an owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, in most countries you will be considered responsible for fire safety.


In general those persons with fire premises responsibilities will need to;


carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly

tell staff or their representatives about the risks identified

put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures

plan for an emergency

provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training


Shared premises


In shared premises it’s likely there’ll be more than one responsible person. You will need to co-ordinate your fire safety plans to make sure people on or around the premises are safe.  For common or shared areas, the responsible person is the landlord, freeholder or managing agent.


The UK law


The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety in England and Wales, and the The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002. Note: From June 2015 DSEAR also covers gases under pressure and substances that are corrosive to metals.
