Fire Risk Assessments are often the starting point when we take on a new client. One of the biggest problems we see, almost on a daily basis, is how little business owners know about their legal obligations to ensure adequate fire safety measures.
What does this mean for you?
If you are based in Kendal and own non-domestic premises or a multi-occupancy residential building in England or Wales, you’re obliged by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to take reasonable steps to protect all relevant people. A Fire Risk Assessment should be undertaken to determine the suitability of the existing fire safety arrangements and the minimum fire precautions required for life safety. The ‘Responsible Person’ must appoint a competent person to assist them in carrying out or reviewing a Fire Risk Assessment. This person should have sufficient training, experience, and knowledge relevant to fire safety.
This is where we come in.
Fire Risk Assessments are often viewed as a ‘box ticking’ exercise. It’s actually more complex than that, and it’s our job to help you meet your legal obligations with the minimum of fuss.
Our qualified team has carried out thousands of Fire Risk Assessments in Kendal and beyond, so there’s nothing we’ve not encountered before. We sort out everything from the small details to the complex issues. We also regularly address requirements of Enforceable Notices served by the Fire Authorities.
The result is that our Fire Risk Assessments are direct and jargon-free – providing sound advice on what you need to do to meet the minimum life safety requirements.
