BMR hosts Borders Safety Group for Fire Safety meeting

During the summer members of the Borders Safety Group met at BMR to hear a presentation given by Euan Wilson and Doug Harvey, Fire Safety Enforcement Officers based at Galashiels. 

Fire safety in non-domestic premises is covered under The Fire Safety (Scotland) Act 2005 and The Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

All businesses with 5 or more employees must have a written Fire Risk Assessment plan. Smaller businesses must be able to demonstrate that all provisions are in place to ensure safety of life in the event of a fire.
