Better Business for All

Good fire safety management saves lives and protects property


The Service is working with other regulators and businesses to develop a co-ordinated and consistent approach that helps businesses to meet their regulatory requirements.

For the Service this means we help businesses by giving advice and support to manage fire safety within their premises and ensuring that they comply with the law. We are committed to ensuring that people who work in and visit businesses are safe from fire and that business will receive consistent advice and information to ensure effective business continuity.

We know regulation can be difficult to navigate so we want to simplify the process and develop better relationships between businesses and regulators.

'Better Business for All' (BBfA) is part of a national government initiative to reduce the regulatory burden on business. It is endorsed by the Better Regulation Delivery Office, which is part of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.

In 2017 we were named as a key partner in the award winning Heart of the South West Better Business for All initiative. We have been an active member of the team for a number of years and look forward to developing links to the business community and helping keep Devon and Somerset safe from fire.

Check out what BBfA have done so far on the Heart of the South West Grow Hub website.
