The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 makes it legally binding that someone in your business be responsible for fire safety requirements ensuring that all persons, either employed or just visiting, are safely protected whilst in the building and have adequate and efficient means of escape in the event of a fire.
A Fire Risk Assessment report is a legally binding document taking into account the type of building, type of business, persons at risk, fire alarm, fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, signage etc. The report we deliver is specific and identifies areas of risk and any remedial works that would need to be carried out within given time frames.
Prior to 2005 the Fire Brigade were responsible to assess a building for fire safety and they provided a Fire Safety Certificate. The Fire Brigade still hold jurisdiction on fire safety within their area and now require you to provide an adequate Fire Risk Assessment report on your business and premises. Failure to do so, if required, and dependent upon the level of fire safety breaches, could result in prosecution.
