Resources and News
Who is the resposible person in your organisation ?
The Responsible Person oversees fire safety for a business and has legally defined responsibilities. It is usually the person who is in control of the business, such as the owner or senior manager.
In buildings with multi-occupancy there may be more than one Responsible Person for the building, as each separate business will need to appoint their own Responsible Person for matters relating to their company fire safety. The managing agent and landlord may also appoint a Responsible Person for their building; remember that this person will not necessarily have responsibility for all fire safety matters that affect each building tenant, so review the key responsibilities carefully to ensure that each requirement has been addressed.
What are your key responsibilities ?
If you are The Responsible Person you have legal responsibility for the safety of people who may be legitimately on the business premises and/or who may be affected if there was a fire.
