Under the order, anyone who has control of premises or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas or systems maybe a Responsible Person.
For example, it could be:
The employer for those parts of premises staff may go to.
The managing agent or owner for shared parts of premises or shared fire safety equipment such as fire-warning systems or sprinklers.
The occupier, such as self-employed people or voluntary organisations if they have any control; or
Any other person who has some control over a part of the premises.
Although in many premises the responsible person will be obvious, there may be times when a number of people have some responsibility.
