The paper "Fire Safety Management" is a perfect example of a case study on management. The University of Central Lancashire is legally obligated to ensure the health and safety of all people who reside or enter the University (Snow, 2003). The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 replaced several fire safety legislation that existed prior to this period and as such, the University of Central Lancashire is obliged to act within the precincts of this legislation. This legislation rendered any certificate issued under the Fire Precautions Act 1971 null and void (Tondon, 2008).
The legislation brought about reforms in relation to fire safety in non-domestic premises. Thus, the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre (STFSC) is covered under this legislation. The legislation puts a specified duty on the responsible person in the workplace. This may be the employer or any other individual who may have any control over the premise (Eskell, 2000). These persons are required to take precautions aimed at safeguarding the safety of occupants of the premise and any other person within the immediate vicinity of the premise (Furness and Muckett, 2007).
This entails making sure that fire systems, procedures are adequately maintained, and that staff is trained to ensure that they are fully aware of their fire and safety responsibilities. Fire is considered a hazard in any organization that has a large building infrastructure. This Fire Safety management plan (FSMP) is being prepared to ensure that the university can manage this risk at its Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre (STFSC) (Tondon, 2008). This is a new purpose-built indoor facility on the main campus of the University of Central Lancashire. This facility offers a wide range of programs including instructor-led classes, Student Union (SU) Sports Clubs, and individual training (Furness and Muckett, 2007).
The facility has seven activity areas Fitness Suite, Cardio Zone, Sports Hall One and Two, Studio Red, Studio Blue, and Squash Court. The STFSC consists of four floors: lower ground floor, upper ground floor, first floor, and second floor.
