Sellafield Limited served with Fire Enforcement notice

10 July, 2014

ONR have issued a fire enforcement notice to Sellafield Limited, following a fire safety inspection earlier this year.  The inspection, which was carried out in a building in the final stages of construction, identified concerns about the provision of fire safety arrangements, specifically in relation to means of escape from the building.

ONR concluded that the inadequate means of escape in part of the building were in breach of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Sellafiled Limited are now required to make improvements to the escape arrangements within the building by 1 May 2015, and put short term emergency measures in place immediately.
