In 2009 London courts handed out fines of over £1m to companies, large and small, as well as to individuals due to breaches of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order.
These figures show that courts are taking any breaches of this order very seriously. In two cases people were even given jail sentences.
If you are responsible for fire safety in your company, make sure you take it as seriously as the courts, that way you won’t find yourself or your company punished with heavy fines to pay or jail sentences to serve.
