We make sure your fire alarm system is fit for purpose and legally compliant while protecting your employees and your business.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005 makes it a legal requirement for an assessment of fire risk to be produced, and the significant findings acted upon. This could, amongst other things, identify a need for a fire alarm system, fire extinguishers and emergency lighting. Failing to carry out and/or failing to act on the findings of a Fire Risk Assessment will make the responsible person liable to prosecution and any insurance policy may be invalid.
Use our expertise of constantly changing legislation to help you complete your Fire Risk Assessment, to provide reassurance that the right precautions are in place protecting your premises, employees and livelihood.
The person responsible for meeting the order could be:
- An employer with control of premises
- A managing agent or owner for shared parts of building
- An occupier such as self-employed people or voluntary organisation
- Any other person with control over part or all the premises
Previous fire certificates are no longer accepted so your Fire Risk Assessment must, among other things, identify changes, remove or reduce risk where possible, consider The Disability Discrimination Act 2005 who may be especially at risk, and take precaution to deal with any possible remaining risk.
