Updated Fire Safety Guidance Documents in England

Health & Safety

The Home Office has appointed consultants to produce new fire safety guidance and update existing guides as part of a wider overhaul of guidance which supports the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The existing guides to be updated are:

  • A Short Guide to Making your Premises Safe from Fire
  • Fire Safety in Purpose-Built Blocks of Flats
  • Fire Safety Risk Assessment Checklist
  • Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 Guidance Note no.1

The guides are to be consistent with any amendments via the new proposed Fire Safety Bill and any secondary legislation implementing the Grenfell Phase 1 report recommendations.
