Fire poses a significant risk in the workplace. The Health & Safety Authority has a role in monitoring employers' management of fire risk. The purpose of the Fire Services Act is to clearly assign responsibility of Fire safety to those who own, occupy, manage or work in the premises. This programme is essential for all workplaces where one or more trained fire safety officers are delegated responsibility for fire prevention.
