The Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 were created following the introduction of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, which places duty on the 'Responsible Person' of an organisation to ensure that suitable and sufficient fire safety control measures and practices are in place for any premises that require them.

These responsibilities include engaging a competent person to complete a Fire Risk Assessment for the premises, ensuring continued checks are completed by the duty holder or their representative to ensure the premises remain safe for occupation and safe for the activities that are carried out there. The regulations also require that employees are suitably informed / trained in the fire safety procedures for the organisation, that a safe method of evacuation is in place and that these procedures have been instructed to all relevant personnel.

At Direct Response Training we can provide Fire Safety & Fire Warden training for your employees, we can also provide the necessary policies, checklists and procedures for your organisation to ensure that your employees, customers, visitors and anyone else who may enter your workplace, are safe and informed.
