Updated version 10.1 fire code following further amendments

The 10th Edition of the ‘fire code’, Fire Prevention on Construction Sites, launched in 2022.

Now, there is a revised version incorporating Amendment 1.


As well as the main amendments, the Working Party has also taken the opportunity to incorporate a number of minor textual changes throughout the document.

The objective of the fire code is the prevention of fires on construction sites.

The majority of fires are preventable by designing out risks, taking simple precautions, and adopting safe working practices.

The code applies to all activities carried out before and during the procurement, construction and design process – not the complete structure.

You should read it in conjunction with all current legislation and the HSE publication HSG168: Fire safety in construction.

Printed copies are available for £30 + postage here.
