Fire Risk Assessment
Most fires can be prevented. Those responsible for workplaces or public access buildings can avoid them by taking responsibility and adopting the right behaviours and procedures throughout their company.
It is a legal requirement, under the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 supported by the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 in Scotland and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (England and Wales), for all premises to have a fire risk assessment carried out. This legislation places the onus of responsibility on owners, directors, landlords and property managers. By not having a fire risk assessment in place it puts building users at risk, invalidates your insurance cover and could lead to personal prosecution or even imprisonment as a consequence of non-compliance. A responsible person must carry out fire risk assessment and take reasonable steps to remove or reduce the risk by implementing and maintaining a fire management plan.
HSCS Scotland Ltd can carry out an in-depth fire risk assessment of your premises and produce a full report incorporating a fire action plan specifying recommended improvements with timescales and advice for legal compliance.
