Unfortunately, there is no panacea that has to date been identified, which can assure a reduction in the incidence of fires. At present fire and rescue services have concerned themselves with disseminating information, mandating procedures, and monitoring. Vigilance on behalf of the public towards exercising best practices and common sense can contribute considerably in stemming the tide. Assess law in the UK and how the law operates internationally as it applies to fires The duty to take general fire precautions is an element found in the new law, and it can be stated as the focus of all fire services.
The new law has been extended into codifying and making simple, more than seventy pieces of legislation that have applicability to a large majority of the premises in the UK. The law goes as far as to make it compulsory for employers and building owners to take a front line responsibility in assuring that their premises are free of all hazards which might cause the ignition of fires, and in the event of the worst-case scenario, that there are adequate and sufficient means of egress, and that everyone is aware, and appropriately informed of the locations, and how they are to be accessed.
The new law places considerably more emphasis on the prevention of fires in businesses. One of the new measures which have been implemented is the eradication of fire certificates, which were formerly issued by the UK fire service. The new owner centered regulations now place the responsibility of inspection, squarely into the laps of the individual owners.
