We are the Enforcing Authority for the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 within our county. The primary role of the Protection department is to ensure that fire safety legislation is enforced in non-domestic premises, commercial premises and common parts of domestic premises across Cheshire.
As the enforcing authority we are committed to working with businesses to ensure premises are safe. The effects of a fire can be devastating in terms of lives lost, injuries, and damage to property. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 places a legal requirement upon employers and responsible persons to ensure the fire safety of their premises regardless of fire service intervention.
