At the end of 2006 the biggest change to UK fire safety law for over 30 years occurred when the Regulatory Reform [Fire Safety] Order 2005 came onto the statute books. The new regulations mark a seismic shift in the application of UK fire safety in which employers, not the fire service, now have to determine the fire safety of all occupants and employees. This sea change could clearly have major implications for the safety of all those who occupy non-domestic premises for work or leisure. Several million premises are caught by this new law and employers risk prosecution, severe penalties and possible imprisonment if they place any occupant at risk. This book draws on over three decades of professional fire fighting, rescue and fire safety specialist enforcement to provide invaluable jargon-free, practical guidance to those who now bear responsibility: property and facilities managers; office managers and company secretaries; health and safety officers; architects and professional specifiers; building company executives; surveyors and landlords; police officers; lawyers and students of Public Safety Law; fire officers.
