Fire safety training and the law

Employers must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure safe escape for both employees and visitors. They must:

  • Ensure all employees are provided with adequate safety training at the time they are first employed and on being exposed to new and increased risks.
  • Appoint one or more ‘competent persons’ to assist with fire safety in the workplace, and provide them with sufficient training to remain effective in reducing the risks from fire hazards.
