General fire safety in England and Wales is maintained through compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The legislation implements a risk-based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises. It requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment, implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures and to maintain a fire management plan. All members of staff have a role to play in fire safety and the fire safety qualifications support these various roles.
All individuals involved with fire safety must receive all the required information and training to deal with fire safety issues. We are pleased to be able to offer the Level 2 Fire Safety qualification on the QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework). The provision of this Fire Safety qualification will assist organisations meet their legal obligations as well as provide a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
