Also known as the RRO, the legislation firmly assigned responsibility for fire safety in non-domestic premises in England and Wales to a ‘Responsible Person’: the business or building owner or the person in charge of overall management of the building. It also stipulated that all businesses with five or more employees must obtain a fire-risk assessment and act on its findings.
In clearly assigning responsibility to a single individual the legislation has arguably improved accountability, strengthening the incentive to fulfill fire-safety obligations (put simply: stay out of prison and avoid a hefty fine) and giving the fire service legislative teeth to pursue prosecutions.
