Fire Kills

The "Duty Holder" is ultimately responsible for fire safety within the workplace. Everyone has a part to play "you can prevent fire".


Fire Risk Assessment

The legal duty which is imposed by the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, as amended, seeks to achieve safety in the event of a fire. There are seven general requirements placed upon the Duty Holder.

  • Undertake a fire risk assessment of the building
  • Identify suitable fire safety measures to reduce the risk
  • Implement the safety measures
  • Control, monitor, maintenance and review of the fire safety measures
  • Compliance with the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006
  • Keeping the fire risk assessment under review
  • Maintaining an adequate records system

The responsibility for compliance with these duties sits with the employer and other persons who have significant control over the premises. If you require further advice or would like a no obligation quotation please contact us.
