The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) came into force on October 1st 2006 and it replaces almost all existing fire-related legislation.

 It is expected that each organisation will have a written Fire Policy, which should include;

  • Who will hold responsibility at board level for Fire Safety
  • Who will be the ‘Responsible person’ for each of the premises (the person who has overall control, usually the manager)
  • The arrangement whereby managers will, where necessary, nominate in writing specific people to carry out particular tasks if there is a fire, and
  • The arrangement whereby regional or area managers should monitor and check the individual managers are meeting the requirements of the fire safety law.

Domec can manage your arrangements, including:

  • Fire Risk Assessments
  • Fire Alarm Testing
  • Fire door, smoke ventilation and fire shutters function testing
  • Fire extinguisher and blanket testing
  • Wet/dry fire suppression systems
  • Ductwork fire protection
