Fire Safety can be a complicated subject, especially for the education sector. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions that we get asked.
The main piece of legislation that covers schools is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
The directive mandates that all employers appoint a Responsible Person (RP) to guarantee that the school is prepared to avoid a fire, recognise any potential fire risks, be able to prepare and conduct a fire drill, among other important fire safety procedures.
Specific fire safety duties must be performed by the 'responsible person' or a fire warden acting on their behalf. Conducting a fire risk assessment is one of them. A risk assessment must be available in writing if there are more than five individuals employed.
Staff, students, and visitors may be injured if proper school fire safety precautions are not implemented. Buildings, as well as your school's reputation, could be severely damaged or destroyed. Education and learning may be harmed, especially if parts of the school must be closed for restorations due to fire and smoke damage.
If a school does not comply, you could be issued with an alterations notice, enforcement notice, prohibition notice or a penalty.
