Good management of fire safety is essential to prevent fires from occurring and to ensure that if they do occur they are likely to be controlled or contained quickly, effectively and safely, or that, if a fire does occur and grow, everyone in the premises is able to escape to a place of total safety easily and quickly.

Article 11 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (or the equivalent in Scotland and Northern Ireland) requires the responsible person/dutyholder to make and implement arrangements for planning, organising, controlling, monitoring and review of the preventive and protective measures required by the respective legislation, as this topic describes.
