What Type of Buildings Need To comply?

  • Home of Multiple Occupation

A Home in multiple occupation (HMO) is a property rented out by at least 3 people who are not from 1 ‘household’ (for example a family) but share common parts i.e. kitchen, bathrooms and other communal areas. HMOS’s are usually shared by more than 1 household.  Passive and Active fire protection measures are required, ensuring full protection of escape routes.  Regular testing and maintenance is necessary together with certified EIRCS in accordance with BS7671 and Gas Safe Certification.  We will fully assess the premises and implement all necessary fire safety measures to provide full compliance.

  • Residential Dwelling Common Parts

It is a legal requirement in accordance with The Fire Safety Order 2005 for Owners/Landlords to undertake fire risk assessments for Block of Flats, Maisonettes and Sheltered Accommodation.  Common parts can be defined as main entrance, lobbies, hallways, lifts, stairwells, emergency/fire exits, passageways and pathways. In certain cases common parts can also include car parks and gyms. In-depth fire risk assessment will be performed taking into consideration general fire precautions in the common parts, which will in-turn identify any potential shortcomings and document remedial action recommendations.

  • Corporate Entities

For businesses employing more than 5 employees, it is a compulsory requirement to execute a fire risk assessment with findings to be documented. In the event of ignition and injury/damage to occupants and premises, underwriters may invalidate your policy if compliance documents are not in place.  Our assessors follow PAS 79 methodology determining fire hazards and level of risk outlining if any, preventative measures that will need to be implemented.  Complete fire protection measures together with best practice will be recommended in line with protocol.

  • Places of Worship

All places of worship need to comply with The Fire Safety Order 2005. If you are operating a Church, Mosque, Synagogue, Temple or any other place of worship, a fire risk assessment will have to be carried out. It is imperative that control and preventative measures are in place to reduce the risk to occupants and property.   Fire risk assessment will enable a thorough methodical review of the site, robust fire safety management and prevention practice.

  • Educational Premises

Individuals responsible for educational premises will need to perform fire risk assessments. It is a legal requirement in line with The Fire Safety Order 2005. This will cover general fire precautions and other fire safety duties which are required to protect ‘relevant persons’ in case of fire. Key aspect of fire safety management and prevention will be to identify ignition, fuel and oxygen sources, people at risk and numerous other fire safety elements during survey that will highlight key findings.

  • Care Homes

Care Homes are institutions that specialise in providing accommodation and other care services to individuals that require support in their daily life. Fire Risk Assessment protocol is a compulsory requirement for all Care Homes. Fire Risk Assessment will undertake thorough review of all fire safety elements that are necessary to reduce the risk to occupants and property.
