Where does the new legislation apply?

The Fire Safety Order 2005 applies to virtually all premises and covers nearly every type of building, structure and open space. For example:

fire extinguisher sign
  • offices and shops
  • factories and warehouses
  • hotels and hostels (premises providing sleeping accommodation)
  • residential care premises
  • educational premises
  • community halls
  • common areas of houses in multiple occupation
  • pubs, clubs and restaurants
  • open air events (inc tents and marquees)
  • healthcare premises
  • transport premises and facilities

But it excludes purely domestic premises occupied by a single family group.
