Business Fire Safety

The Business Fire Safety South Yorkshire project supports small and medium enterprises in reducing the risk and impact of fire on their business premises.

The key objective of the initiative is to establish robust fire safety cultures within businesses that aim to protect employees and ensure business continuity.

This free initiative provides guidance, support, business toolkits and links to opportunities to develop skills, assisting businesses to manage their fire safety obligations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It also promotes the adoption of in house Fire Safety Ambassadors to more effectively manage fire risks in a range of organisations who have less awareness of fire safety issues.

In addition, for businesses who already have strong and robust fire safety measures in place, the project also supports the achievement of a fire safety accreditation that is recognised by South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.


As an additional free tool, the Fire Safety app is available on Apple and Android devices and provides access to resources to increase fire safety awareness and engage users.

The project is delivered in partnership with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, and is a free service to South Yorkshire businesses. The project is funded by South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority’s Stronger Safer Communities Reserve.
