Barbour: Fire Safety Enforcement Director’s Briefing

Fire safety enforcement remains high on the regulatory agenda, particularly following the fire at Grenfell Tower in June 2017, which resulted in the deaths of 72 people. The enforcing authority will usually be the local fire and rescue authority, and enforcement will normally be carried out by a fire inspector, but can also be carried out by an employee of the authority who is authorised in writing by the fire authority.

Here, Barbour EHS has put together a useful briefing on the key information required to understand fire safety enforcement, and the powers the enforcing authority has if organisations fail to comply with the any of the duties or requirements imposed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 where this gives rise to a risk of death or serious injury in case of a fire.

The briefing covers:

  • Key information organisations should know on fire safety enforcement
  • Two examples of case law instances, where organisations were found to be at fault
  • An explanation of the relevant legislation
  • Examples of what the enforcing authority can serve
  • What organisations should do to ensure they can protect themselves and employees/occupants
