Fire Safety Law Significantly changed on the 1st October 2006 and has major implications for all businesses in England and Wales.
This new law simplifies previous fire safety law and places a greater focus on ownership, accountability and improved focus on fire prevention.
The law repeals both the Fire Precautions Act 1971 and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1999 by placing responsibility for fire safety firmly with the employer or ‘responsible person’ for a building who is required by law to assess the fire risk within a building using an acceptable means of risk assessment.
The responsible person must ensure a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks is undertaken by a competent person for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements of the Order.
At Securus Group, we take our responsibility in regard to this legislation very seriously, and our fire safety risk assessments can be carried out anywhere in the UK.
Upon completion of your fire risk assessment, we will provide you with a report that highlights any issues so that they can be dealt with in priority order. It is a vital part of the exercise that the document is reviewed and a documented plan is put into action to address any issues arising.
Whether you require just the Fire Risk Assessment & report in isolation – or as a full programme of implementation support – we can provide a cost effective solution without compromise to safety, through qualified and competent personnel to support both fire safety and success of your operation, its premises and its people.
