Fire Safety Webinar Coming Soon!

What is The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and what does it mean for your business?

That’s the subject of a forthcoming webinar from FIREX International, which takes place at 2pm on 27 January.

Those responsible for workplaces and other buildings to which the public have access can avoid fires by taking responsibility for and adopting the right behaviours and procedures. The RRO (fire safety) 2005 sets out your legal obligations as a business owner or ‘responsible person’ under the legislation. Failure to comply with the mandates within the order could lead to a long prison sentence and/or heavy fine.

John Briggs of the Fire Protection Association will present the webinar, showing you what the RRO 2005 means to you and your business.
