On October 1st 2006, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety order) came into force. This is a major change in legislation and fire certificates are no longer issued or in force. As an employer, or as someone who has control of a workplace you must take steps to ensure that you have what is known as a 'suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment' in place.
It is important to understand that fire risk assessment is not the same as a fire certificate. Every business owner and employer must be able to demonstrate the following:
All fire risks have been assessed and the results recorded with written fire risk assessments.
Records to show that fire fighting equipment has been provided, properly maintained and regularly inspected.
An Emergency Action Plan has been written, confirmed and published.
Staff have received fire training in the use of equipment & procedures in the event of fire.
here are adequate means of fire detection, warning systems and escape routes in place to allow people to leave the building safely.
Action plans have been formulated and signed off to indicate proposed completion dates and actual completion dates.
Fleet Health & Safety can visit your premises and provide you with comprehensive fire risk assessment. We can also provide all types of fire extinguishers & blankets.
Fleet Health and Safety can help you as much or as little as you like and we
will not sell you something you do not require. We can develop a complete health & safety system for you or just provide a health & safety policy, a full audit or help you with your reporting of an incident -it's that simple. We believe that every business is unique in its health and safety
requirements and do not operate a tied contracts system.
Please call us on 01557 335067 or 07738 788272 to discuss any
aspect of health and safety for your organisation.
