Fire Safety (England) (Employees’ Capabilities) Regulations 2010
May
04

Fire Safety (England) (Employees’ Capabilities) Regulations 2010 came into force on 06 April 6 2010.

These regulations have been issued to close a perceived gap in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. They require that employers delegating fire safety tasks take into account the fire safety capabilities of the employees to whom these tasks are delegated. This “new” fire safety legislation formalises a duty which was (arguably) already implicitly present in the existing legislation, i.e., the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
