An independent evaluation to determine whether the guidance in its current form is used by those it is intended for; is helpful; and what may be needed to strengthen it. The key objectives of the research were to:

• measure awareness of the guidance and establish the extent to which it is being used;

• explore how the guidance is being used, and its effectiveness in supporting implementation of fire safety measures/procedures; and

• determine improvements that could be made to the guidance, in terms of format, delivery, content and more generally to strengthen the effectiveness of the fire safety support it provides.
