Abstract

Concerns fire safety in offices, shops (including restaurants and bars), factories and certain railway premises. It is a basic guide for owners or occupiers of these kinds of business premises and also for local managers, supervisors or employees' representatives who need to know about fire precautions in places of work. It explains how the Fire Precautions Act 1971 affects places of work and what the owners or occupiers of these premises may in consequence be required to do by law under the Act. It also gives guidance on fire precautions which, even if not required by law, it would be prudent for owners/managers etc. to take in those premises which the Fire Precautions Act applies, in order to reduce the risk of fire and to ensure that people know what action to take if a fire occurs.
