  • 1. Are you a 'responsible person'?
  • 2. U nder the new Fire Safety Law - the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 - you could be deemed a 'responsible person' if you exercise control over all, or part of, workplace premises. You could be an owner, buildings or facilities manager, or a contract catering manager - somebody who is responsible for the welfare and safety of employees and building occupants. Every company has a legal responsibility to appoint a 'responsible person or persons'. The Responsibilities of the 'Responsible Person' A 'responsible person' is legally required to produce a fire risk assessment to identify fire hazards i.e. sources of potential ignition. There is a duty to take action to eliminate, or, at the very least, to minimise any threat to the safety of employees and building occupants. Failure to have carried out a fire risk assessment will result in criminal prosecution of the 'responsible person' in the event of a fire causing injury or death. A Summary of Fire Law Changes ■ Fire certificates will be abolished. ■ Fire risk assessments must be produced. The “responsible person or persons” must be appointed. ■ “Responsible person” to ensure safety of building occupants by eliminating or minimising fire hazards identified in Fire Risk Assessment. ■ In multiple occupation premises, the landlord or managing agents have responsibility. ■ Fire Authorities will be enforcing Authorities with power to ensure responsibility is met and, if it is not, to penalise the offender, either financially or by imprisonment. ■ Failure to meet responsibilities can result in personal liability action against the “responsible person”.
  • 3. building which contains catering facilities will almost invariably A have one major source of fire risk which must be included in the fire risk assessment - the grease extract system beyond the kitchen canopies. Grease from the cooking operation passes canopy filters and accumulates in ducting to provide a high risk ignition source. The 'responsible person' must take steps to ensure this fire risk is eliminated. Free Fire Survey and Report We will carry out a survey of your grease extract system and provide a detailed report including system schematic, quite free of charge. This will assist you in preparing the fire risk assessment and describe what action needs to be taken to eliminate any identified fire risks. And remember, if you do not comply with the law and there is a fire you could find insurance claims being disputed and renewal difficult, if not impossible, to obtain. For your free survey phone 020 8661 7888 or email ductclean@indepthhygiene.co.uk. Cautionary Note There have been instances where property owners have thought their grease extract systems had been cleaned only to find, usually as a result of a fire, that grease deposits had not been fully removed. Remember, unless the grease extract is fully cleaned, grease accumulation will remain as a potential fire risk and you could be criminally liable in the event of a fire causing injury to building occupants. Deep cleaning should be carried out in accordance with the Heating & Ventilating Contractors' Association's UK and European Standard TR19 and only contractors who comply with this specification should be retained. Indepth Hygiene Services, as a member of the HVCA, carry out all deep cleaning services in accordance with Specification HVCA TR19.
