At Bull Products, we offer a fire risk assessment to our customers. Get in touch to find out more.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is the main legislation with regards to Fire Risk Assessments. 118 pieces of legislation were consolidated and rationalized in this document and the old “Fire Certificate” was abolished.

One of the main requirements is that the “responsible person” must undertake a Fire Risk Assessment on the workplace.
A responsible person is defined in Article 3 as:
(a) in relation to a workplace, the employer, if the workplace is to any extent under his control;
(b) in relation to any premises not falling within paragraph (a)
(i) the person who has control of the premises (as occupier or otherwise) in connection with the carrying on by him of a trade, business or other undertaking (for profit or not); or
(ii) the owner, where the person in control of the premises does not have control in connection with the carrying on by that person of a trade, business or other undertaking.
