It is a company’s responsibility to ensure that its staff and anyone else associated with the company are not put at risk by any work activities in line with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSAWA).

In addition to this, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992 (MHSWR) requires employers to have arrangements in place to cover health and safety, not only for staff but also for others who may be affected by the work activities.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 sets out the law on general fire safety.

The main risks of fire that affect company premises, will be identified and covered in this Fire Safety Policy.
