FIRE SAFETY RESPONSIBILITY SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. PARTNER WITH CHURCHES FIRE & SECURITY TO UNDERSTAND THE FIRE SAFETY REGULATIONS FOR YOUR ORGANISATION
YOUR LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES
If you are an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or non-domestic premises, you could be legally responsible for the fire safety of your employees, customers, and anybody else who could be affected by a fire at your premises.
A competent and knowledgeable person must create a Fire Risk Assessment for the building(s) and surrounding areas. It is advisable to employ the services of qualified Fire Risk Assessors, such as those at Churches Fire & Security, to carry out this essential evaluation. Using our expert Assessors, you can rest assured that no fire safety risk is overlooked.
The consequences of not using a qualified Assessor could be that the premises is unsafe, hazards are not removed and fire risks are left unmanaged. Penalties and enforcements are imposed by the UK Government if businesses do not follow fire safety regulations.
understanding fire safety
In England and Wales, all non-domestic premises are obliged to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. In Scotland, this legislation is governed by the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and in Northern Ireland by the Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006. The Responsible Person (known as the duty holder in Scotland and Northern Ireland), usually the employer or landlord, is personally liable for complying with this legislation. This responsibility includes, but is not limited to, carrying out the assessment and reviewing it regularly, creating an emergency plan and removing hazards.
By using a qualified Fire Risk Assessor from Churches Fire & Security, you can be confident that your premises will be assessed, and instructions will be provided to ensure comformity to fire safety legislation.
Churches Fire & Security can ensure that you fulfil all of your fire safety obligations and remain fully compliant with all legislation. You can concentrate on your business in the knowledge that we will keep your employees, customers and assets safe from the dangers of fire.
