Fire Risk Assessment for Offices

Fire risk assessment

In the United Kingdom, organisations must act with strict rules of fire safety and assessing the risk of fire on an ongoing basis. In England and Wales, every company or building proprietor is accountable for the fire safety risk assessment of that organisation or building.

What is RRO?

The Regulatory Reform Order (RRO) 2005 came into effect and successfully launched new fire safety guidelines. This new code, that is typically known as the RRO, applies to all non-domestic buildings and premises in England and Wales, and additionally covers all areas of common use.
