Fire Safety and Management

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.

    You may have had a few quotations in for an external wall fire review and the EWS1 and thought they were ‘expensive’ but have you actually considered why?

     

    The cost of professional indemnity insurance that consultants have to pay is affecting the cost of undertaking external wall fire reviews and the completion of the EWS1 forms.

    Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) is not only extremely difficult to obtain but it is also extremely expensive even if obtainable.

    There is also a lack of available PII cover for all but those of firms who will have the turnover to cover the insurance premiums.
