There is a mass of information available on the internet and elsewhere regarding the new Fire Safety Order. Rather than provide a mass of our own information, or quoting from any of the many websites out there, many of which we would not advise you follow, we thought we would not go wrong by simply providing you the web-links for you to view and download the actual Fire Safety Order itself, and the Government-produced guides to the Order. These guides are very comprehensive, and one has been issued for each of the following types of premise:
Offices and shops
Factories and warehouses
Residential care premises
Small and medium places of assembly
Large places of assembly
Cinemas, theatres and similar places
Open air events and venues
Transport premises and facilities
Animal premises and stables
(Choose the ones that apply to your premises.)
