The Legal Requirement

The Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 and the associated Health & Safety legislation place an obligation on employers to ensure that their staff receive adequate fire safety training at the time when they are first employed and on there being increased or  changed risks. The level and frequency of staff fire training is determined by the type, use and risk presented.
