The Fire Safety (Employees’ Capabilities) (England) Regulations 2010 ,is an additional piece of legislation that relating to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which was released on the 6th of April 2010.

 

 

The article states that, the employer must consider what a worker is able or unable to do when delegating responsibility for fire related risks.

 

The new regulation states that, Employers are to take employees' capabilities into consideration.

 

Every employer must, in entrusting tasks to employees, take into account their capabilities with regards to health and safety, so far as those capabilities relate to fire.

It reinforces what the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 indicates and supports the duty that staff must have, sufficient training and experience or knowledge'.

 

In order to carry out a Fire risk assessment; the legislation governing them states that they should be undertaken by a  ‘competent person’
 

A Competent Person is “a person who has acquired through training, qualification or experience, or a combination of them, the knowledge and skills to carry out a particular task.”

 

So, employers will now have to think about what a worker is able and unable to do when giving those tasks and how these capabilities may affect their ability to deal with fire related risks. This includes fire risk assessments and nominated fire wardens or marshals.

The RRO is still the primary legislation concerning all sectors of fire safety and these extra regulations should not impose any extra burden on organisations. It merely highlights what you might not have known before.

“employers are to take employees capabilities into consideration prior to delegating responsibilities”
