What must an employer do?
Employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date.
Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.
Once you have identified the risks, you can take appropriate action to control them. Consider whether you can avoid them altogether or, if this is not possible, how you can reduce the risks and manage them. Also consider how you will protect people if there is a fire.
Fire Risk Assessments
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that fire risk assessments must be carried out in businesses and organisations by a responsible person. Most companies do not have personnel with the required skills and competence to properly assess the risks and define the necessary corrective actions.
Our highly experienced team of Fire Risk Assessors will inspect your site, identify potential risks, and create a detailed fire risk assessment report which will clearly identify the solutions needed to improve the fire safety within your business or organisation.
Fire Extinguisher Installation and Servicing
Fire extinguisher maintenance is required to be undertaken every year according to the British Standard Code of Practice BS 5306 Part 3, to ensure maximum safety of fire extinguishers is apparent.
