An accident is always someone’s fault

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order came into effect on 1st October 2006, followed by the Manslaughter and Homocide Act, amendments and additions to the Disability Discrimination Act, Disability Equality Duty legislation and Health & Safety; new environmental laws and the Bribery and Corruption Act.

 

These Acts place significant responsibility on owners/tenants/ employers and building occupiers to implement a robust fire and safety management regime. Based upon the principle of risk assessment and written policies, which now supercedes previous legislation and certification, a ‘Responsible Person’ must be appointed to produce, implement and review these policies.

 

Compliance now requires a more detailed and systematic approach to risk assessment and safety management. This includes elements regarding in-built structural protection, life safety systems and escape provision in the event of a fire or an emergency incident.  The identification of hazards, people at risk, the maintenance of safety equipment and systems; including the need for an emergency plan together with staff instruction and training, are necessarily the coordinated and cooperative responsibility of owners, tenants, employers, the appointed ‘Responsible Person’ and all employees.

 

YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE:

Were an incident to happen that occasions harm to person and/or the environment appertaining to your business premises and area of responsibility, the likelihood is that blame will be proportioned and compensation and restitution will be sought. Duty of care and negligence will be scrutinised and where found wanting, action will be taken against you and your company.  It is worth considering that a criminal offence cannot be insured against and, in certain circumstances, corresponding criminal action will be taken against the individual and/or those held responsible.
