Fire safety legislation and associated recommendations have come about as a result of significant fires in history, often resulting in the tragic loss of human life.  The subsequent investigations, public enquiries and final reports have led to improved fire safety conditions in all premises whether residential, commercial, industrial or places of assembly.

Some of the fires that have led to the changes in published guidance can be found in the 'tabs' above.  The outlined reports start to build up a picture of the way in which conditions have been improved, and are continuing to be improved, as we learn the lessons that have been bought with a high price.
