Fire Arrangements in the Workplace

Fire Arrangements


The employer must make and implement appropriate arrangements as regards the measures identified by his risk assessment for:

  • the prevention of fire;
  • the protection of people in the event of fire;
  • any other fire precautions.

Having regard to the nature and size of his business, the employer's arrangements must be appropriate for the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the fire precautions.

If the employer has five or more staff, he must record these fire arrangements.

An employer should provide sufficient information and training to ensure that everyone at a workplace knows and is able to do what he requires them to do on spotting a fire and on hearing the alarm.
