    Fire Safety and Management 

fire side 2020

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety in England and Wales.

Under the Fire Safety Order employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date.

Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.

On completion of the fire risk assessment appropriate action must be taken to control the risks and how people will be protected if there is a fire.

Bernadette will undertake fire risk assessments, reviews of previous fire risk assessments and other services including:
