The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 (RRO 2005) came into force in England and Wales; transferring the responsibility for Fire Safety from the fire authorities to whoever has day-to-day control of the building premises. This is known as the Responsible Person. This person must take steps to reduce the risk from fire; consider how to contain a fire should one break out and ensure people can escape safely. They also need to be able to identify a Competent Person i.e. knowledgeable, qualified professional to be able to implement fire safety measures in a building.
Fire Door Inspections
Fire Doors are a crucial part of any public, commercial or multiple-occupancy buildings protection strategy and are essential to ensure that occupants can evacuate a burning building swiftly and safely; avoiding potentially tragic consequences. They resist fire and smoke and are probably the single most important element in giving occupants time to safely evacuate the building, but only if they work properly.
Legislation dictates that Fire Doors should be checked every 6 months – If you have been designated the “responsible person” for a building, it is your duty to ensure your Fire Doors are working effectively and to protect occupants in your building from the risk of smoke and fire.
