Fire safety policy
This fire safety policy ensures that all employees are aware of the fire safety procedures both in their work area, and the workplace as a whole. The policy records businesses goals regarding fire assessment and thus helps ensure compliance with current fire safety legislation.
About this document
This fire safety policy is a flexible and adaptable model policy that can be adopted by any business of any size in order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
It is a necessity for any business - even if you have no employees, the regulations apply to visitors to your premises as well.
By using this policy document, businesses can not only ensure that employees are aware of their responsibilities and obligations with regards to fire safety, but also provide a record of compliance.
We have designed it not merely to comply with the law, but to make it easier for a manager to manage the business by setting out clear paths through the law and processes involved. The structure and layout are easy to follow and can be edited easily to your particular requirements
- General obligations that help staff know what to do in case of fire
- Record of fire safety aims and goals
- Appointment of a "responsible person" to carry out fire assessments
- Appointment of "competent persons" responsible for fire drills and evacuation procedures
- List of the correct documentation that should be provided by a business in order to comply with the legislation
- Employee's duties

Easy to use, even if you have no legal knowledge
Many of our customers are lawyers, but our documents don't require you to be one. Wherever it may be needed, our guidance notes explain the purpose of each paragraph, whether we recommend changing it, and what you might like to consider before you do so.
Our view is that, when editing our documents, you shouldn't have to worry about how to add legal wording. So our documents consider a far greater range of issues than our average customer will need, and because we avoid cross referencing paragraphs, we make it easy for you simply to delete what you don't need without affecting the rest of the document.
