Fire management under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 takes many forms. Starting with completing workplace assessments for fire safety, targeting prevention but ensuring appropriate fire fighting equipment and escape routes with assembly points are in place.
Training for employees on evacuation and fire fighting techniques is also a basic requirement depending upon the type and complexity of the business operation and equipment available.
