FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states:
As the responsible person you must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises. This will identify hazards, risks and existing fire protection measures. You must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more RELEVANT people.
So What is a 'Relevant Person?
The RRFSO (2005) outlines that the term 'Relevant Persons' means:
- Any person (including the responsible person) who is, or may be lawfully on the premises; and,
- Any person in the immediate vicinity of the premises who is at risk from a fire on the premises - this may include: staff, students, visitors or members of the public on the street adjacent to the building.
FIRE ALARMS AND
Fire Alarms and Emergency Lighting are vital systems that could save you and your employee's lives when faced with an emergency.
A Fire Alarm system should include automatic fire detection on all escape routes and rooms leading to escape routes, with clear fire emergency lighting to lead the way.
Fire Alarm systems may also include additional areas, deemed as a high risk but not included in the escape routes and/or adjoining rooms, such as boiler houses.
Are your business premises and staff fully protected with Fire Alarms and Emergency Lighting?
“We moved our fire maintenance contract to PD Fire earlier this year (2015). This step has saved us a considerable amount of money on the charges we were paying previously and we feel we have received sound advice from efficient professionals. Darren, Pete and Roger are friendly and approachable too which always helps with any business transaction. I recommend PD Fire to anyone.”
