Fire is one of the serious accidents that may occur in a company. In order to reduce the risk of fire to a minimum, it is necessary to regulate the fire safety area in accordance with requirements of the law.
All owners or users of business and industrial facilities must implement a fire risk assessment and define fire rules.
For facilities and buildings, which are identified as those with high-fire risk (fire risk assessment of 3rd or higher level) as well as for facilities, in which more people are gathered (above 100 people), one should also implement fire and emergency plans in the event of a fire. Owner or user of such facility shall submit one copy of such fire plan to the fire fighting unit, which is carrying out the public fire fighting service in the area where facility is located.
Owners or users of facilities and buildings, which are identified as those with high-fire risk (fire risk assessment of 3rd or higher level) as well as for facilities, in which more people are gathered (above 100 people), shall carry out practical training for implementing evacuation from the facility in the event of a fire at least once a year.

Owner or user of the facility may authorise suitably qualified natural or legal entity, which on behalf of the owner or user of the facility takes care for implementation of fire protection measures. Despite that the owner or user of these facilities still remains responsible for implementation of mentioned measures.
The employer shall undertake to train anyone, who is regularly or temporarily employed in his company, in fire protection.
The employer, at which the work is performed in shifts of up to 300 workers, shall in his fire rules, for every single shift and for every single location, at which activity is being carried out, appoint one person among all employees, who shall be responsible for initial fire-fighting and for implementation of evacuation. The employer shall further appoint one additional responsible person on every additional 300 workers in shift.
The employer, who shall in addition to the fire rules also produce fire and emergency plans, shall in the mentioned fire rules, appoint among employees in each shift, one person responsible for initial fire-fighting and for implementation of evacuation, irrespective of the number of workers from the previous paragraph. The employer shall further appoint one additional responsible person on every additional 200 people in the facility, who shall be accountable for initial fire-fighting and implementation of evacuation plan.
Regular inspections of lighting protection systems for the existing facilities shall be carried out:
within a period, which is not exceeding 2 years, in the buildings, in which is the earthling of the lighting protection system connected with the earthling of energy installations;
within a period, which is not exceeding 4 years, in all other buildings.
