White Paper: Role of the Responsible Person and the Fire Plan
On all projects, and at every stage of the project, a Responsible Person must be identified, who will take overall responsibility for fire safety on the project.
On most projects, the ‘Responsible Person’ is actually the principle contractor, who then nominate an individual to fill this role. A Fire Marshal would normally support the responsible person in implementing the fire plan. High risk or larger sites may require more than one Fire Marshal along with deputy(s), as indicated by the Fire Risk Assessment.
