Since October 2006, fire certificates are no longer required for the workplace, and the emphasis is on preventing fires and reducing risk. A written fire risk assessment must be in place for every building used as a place of work, entertainment or worship.
It is the responsibility of the Responsible Person, under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, to ensure a fire risk assessment is carried out and kept up-to- date for their premises. We can carry out a detailed fire risk assessment for the premises on your behalf and incorporate a management plan to ensure all aspects of fire safety in the workplace are being addressed.
Our fire risk assessment approach involves a member of our team spending time on your premises to obtain the necessary information, which includes details of your premises layout, work activities, current fire safety measures and any potential areas of fire risk. Upon return to the office they will spend time completing your fire risk assessment documentation. They will then draft the table of fire safety deficiencies detailing any areas in which they feel action is needed to bring your company into line with legal requirements. The fire risk assessment will be provided in both hard-copy and electronically for your reference and implementation.
