VISUAL INSPECTION

Using Armour Safety Management’s own Fire Risk Assessment app, our assessors will carry out a full and thorough visual inspection of all communal areas of the premises. The Fire Risk Assessment is a systematic and structured assessment of the fire risk in the premises for the purpose of expressing the current level of fire risk, determining the adequacy of existing fire precautions and the need for, and nature of, any additional fire precautions. The objective of the significant findings is to set out measures that will ensure that the fire risk is reduced to a tolerable level or removed altogether. This significant finding risk rating has been determined by deciding on the likelihood of fire and the likely consequences of fire.

 

The Fire Safety Act 2021 came into effect on the 19th March 2021. It makes clear the duty-holder/building owner for multi-occupied, residential buildings to manage the risk of fire for entrance doors to individual flats that open into communal areas. Where possible, a minimum 10% sample of flat front doors will be assessed to confirm their suitability. If the assessor believes the flat front doors are varied in type and fire rating then the recommendation will be to carry out a full fire door survey. If the assessor believes all flat front doors are the same then the sample findings will be recorded as such and recommendations will potentially apply to all flat front doors in the building.

 

 

 

 

Article 9 – (1) of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states ‘The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on him by or under this Order.’ The purpose of this report is to provide an assessment of the risk to life from fire in these premises, make appropriate recommendations to reduce or eliminate that risk and to ensure compliance with fire safety legislation. To achieve compliance, fire safety issues are addressed in terms of satisfying the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and generally accepted best practice.

 

If the assessor identifies significant findings that require action, these will be collated in the Action Plan together with their risk rating. Each significant finding in the action plan will also receive a priority rating based on the level of risk and / or likelihood of fire, or the seriousness of the breach of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The action plan will state the significant finding and also offer a suggested solution to achieve compliance. 

This Fire Risk Assessment should be reviewed by a competent person by the date indicated on the cover page or at such earlier time if there is reason to suspect that it is no longer valid, there has been a significant change in the matters to which it relates or if a fire occurs.
