Are you going to be held responsible?
Since the Regulatory Reform Order 2005, fire certificates are no longer being issued. The duty now falls on the responsible person to carry out the necessary action to protect staff, visitors and assets in the event of a fire. The first step in meeting the fire safety legislation is to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment of the premises, which can be carried out by anyone. However, it is in your best interest to ensure that you are using a competent provider who is BAFE SP205 Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment registered, to ensure the highest standard of quality.
If you would like to get more information about Fire Risk Assessments, we will be exhibiting at the Hotel Facilities Management Expo 2018 on the 25th and 26th of September. The event will be taking place at ExCeL London over the two days, and doors are opening at 10 am.

During the second day, Barrie will be holding a presentation on ‘failing of Fire Risk Assessments and what to look out for’ to help you understand the importance of accreditations such as the BAFE. Additionally, you are able to book a meeting with Barrie to discuss it further.
Barrie began his career in 1992 as a Fire Extinguisher Technician and has worked his way up through the company by performing a variety of roles over time. Barrie is compliance focused, and thus, has introduced the British Approval Fire Equipment Qualification (BAFE) to all Churches Fire & Security service technicians. BAFE supplies a technical specification required for each product and service in order to be registered. As an expert in the field, Barrie has over 25 years of experience in the Fire Safety industry and has had active roles on various trade committees such as BAFE, IFEDA and British Standards.
“The main focus for business owners and managers is to ensure that the business is successful and profitable. Compliance with fire safety slips down the list of priorities; this is a major issue not least because enforcing authorities see compliance as the number 1 priority.
The (RRO) Fire Safety Order 2005 is the primary piece of fire legislation, the starting point to full compliance is to undertake a sufficient Fire Risk Assessment.”
We would love to see you there, and therefore have tickets available for you at no expense. The ticket will not limit you to just meeting us and you will be able to make your way around the expo and see all of the different booths as well as attend the seminars that are taking place throughout the event.
