FIA Best Practice Guide for Responsible Persons in commercial buildings

A new best practice guide has been released by the Fire Industry Association (FIA). This best practice guide has been developed as an aid to understanding legislation and the responsibilities of the appointed responsible person for fire safety in commercial premises.

The guide was developed as it was evident that many in the role of responsible person were confused by the legislation and therefore did not have a full understanding of their role or responsibilities.

This comprehensive 28 page document explains not only where and when the fire safety legislation applies but also offers a step by step guide on how to carry out fire risk assessments.  The guide has been developed to be used alongside Fire Safety legislation and the government’s Fire Risk Assessment guides.
