One of our strategic aims is to ‘protect you and the environment from harm’. This represents our legal obligation to keep buildings and businesses safer for people to use.
Without imposing unnecessary burdens on business, we aim to achieve this by:
- Ensuring that our public buildings and workplaces are protected from the risk of fire by promoting ways of making all types of property safer, targeting premises most at risk and, where necessary, enforcing fire safety legislation;
- Having a management strategy and inspection programme to enforce fire safety legislation, targeting high risk premises; and
- Providing education and advice to promote better understanding of how fire protection measures can reduce the impact of fire on the environment, reduce the risks of fire, and minimise the social and economic costs of fires.
