Fire Risk Assessments
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in October 2006 throughout England and Wales. The Order applies to all buildings excluding domestic premises occupied as a single private dwelling.
As a building owner, or even if you manage a particular area of a building you would be defined as the “responsible person” under this legislation and have specific legal duties in respect of fire safety. The main impact for you is that fire risk assessments are mandatory and are being inspected by the enforcing authority (the fire brigade).
A fire risk assessment is a simple organised look at your premises, the activities carried out there and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to property or life.
Daniel Connal Partnership have carried out fire risk assessments on a wide variety of property types and we can therefore provide your business with a fully comprehensive fire risk assessment for your building.
This legal document will have a clear list of recommendations which are prioritised and will be presented in a clear and logical format for ease of use. We are always available should you need to consult us in respect of the adequacy of the assessment when future alterations to the building are being considered.
