Fire Alarm Systems – Employer Responsibility

This legislation, commonly known as RR(FS)O – or simply RRO – is the fire safety law and it applies to all non-domestic business premises in England and Wales.

The legislation applies to the individual deemed as the ‘responsible person’ of a premise. This includes people who are:-

  • Responsible for business premises.
  • An employer (or someone self-employed) with business premises.
  • Responsible for a part of a dwelling which is solely used for business.
  • A charity or voluntary organisation.
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises.

These individuals have a legal obligation to ensure that the premises comply with the fire safety requirements, which are:

  • Carrying out fire safety risk assessments
  • Providing appropriate firefighting equipment such as fire extinguishers and ensuring they are maintained
  • Installation and regular maintenance of fire detectors and alarms
  • Providing emergency lighting where required
