What are the legal requirements for industrial & manufacturing spaces?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is the primary legislation governing fire safety in non-domestic premises, including industrial establishments. The order places a duty on the responsible person (usually the owner or employer) to carry out a fire risk assessment, implement appropriate fire safety measures, and provide adequate training to staff and students. There is a field of supporting literature which has helped create the standards for fire safety expected throughout UK industry. Although no exact guidance for this industry is provided, the Fire safety risk assessment: factories and warehouses is likely relevant to many businesses in this sector.

  • Means of Escape: Industrial spaces must have clearly marked escape routes, unobstructed fire exits, and emergency lighting systems to help occupants evacuate the building safely in the event of a fire.
     
  • Fire Detection and Alarm Systems: Industrial spaces must have appropriate fire detection and alarm systems in place, including smoke detectors, heat detectors, and manual call points. The systems must be regularly maintained and tested to ensure they are in working order.
     
  • Fire Suppression Systems: Depending on the size and layout of the building, industrial spacesmay be required to install fire suppression systems, such as sprinklers or mist systems.
  • Staff Training: All staff members must receive adequate training on fire safety procedures, including how to evacuate the building safely and how to use fire safety equipment, such as fire extinguishers.
     
  • Fire Safety Signage: Clear and visible fire safety signs must be displayed throughout the building, including exit signs, fire extinguisher signs, and fire assembly point signs.
     
  • Fire Risk Assessments: Industrial spaces must carry out regular fire risk assessments to identify potential hazards and implement appropriate fire safety measures. The risk assessments should be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure they remain effective.
