New Fire Regulations
On 1st October 2023, the government introduced regulations under article 24 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (Fire Safety Order) to implement most of those recommendations made to the government in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report which required a change in the law.
These regulations made it a requirement in law for responsible persons of high-rise blocks of flats to provide information to Fire and Rescue Services to assist them to plan and, if needed, provide an effective operational response.
Also, the regulations require responsible persons in multi-occupied residential buildings which are high-rise buildings, as well as those above 11 metres in height, to provide additional safety measures.

HSE Farm Visits
HSE are visiting farms across Great Britain throughout winter 2023 and into Spring 2024 and any inspections will focus on the main causes of death and severe injury in farming, including falls from height.
Autumn and Winter are traditionally a time when farms may need to conduct building maintenance, e.g. repair leaking roofs or replace damaged roof sheeting or repair storm damage.
Before conducting any work at height, stop and think:
Remember that fragile materials should have prominent warning signs to alert anyone working in the vicinity.
Unsafe work at height really is not worth the risk. Make sure that work at height risks is controlled on your farm.
