On 1 October 2006 a new piece of legislation was introduced into the UK to help safeguard all workplace premises from fire. This fire safety law is called the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It replaces numerous other pieces of legislation and means now you have one set of rules to comply with, regarding fire safety.
To assist businesses meet this new legislation Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is offering all businesses within Shropshire the opportunity to attend a free workshop.
