Fire Safety Update

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 sees the end of fire certificates and the introduction of a single system based on the need for all managing agents, business owners and employers to conduct fire risk assessments for their premises.

Employers’ Legal Duties

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. These Regulations apply to all workplaces including those with less than five employees and to the self-employed.
