Following the law when it comes to fire safety is imperative and using the right fire extinguisher installation service in Edinburgh is essential. In the UK, fire safety in the workplace is governed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. In Scotland, the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 governs alongside the associated Fire Safety Scotland Regulations 2006.
There is a requirement in the UK for portable fire extinguishers to be serviced and maintained to the current standard, by a “Competent Person”. The order was made to replace most fire safety legislation with one simple order. It means that any person who has some level of control in a premise must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire. They must also make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire.
The responsible person could be an employer, owner, landlord, occupier or anyone else with control of the premises. This could include a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor.
