Summary of Regulation
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect in October 2006 replacing over 70 pieces of fire safety law.

Under the Regulation, the responsible person has a responsibility to carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain fire safety measures.
At SAMS Ltd we can assist all responsible persons with a thorough assessment of fire risk and making cost effective and reasonable recommendations, which will allow your business or organisation to meet the requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 – thereby making your business a safer working environment.
Site Inspection Service
Work place inspections are an important tool to ensure that safety systems are being followed. At SAMS we offer single or multiple site inspections and audits to assist to identify any issues present, and to advise and guide the site manager.
All inspections undertaken give rise to a written report detailing issues identified and remedial actions recommended, with the site manager fully briefed on the findings.
