  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐.

Fire Risk Assessment Presentation

  1. 1. Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 Fire Risk Assessment VERITAS CONSULTING www.veritas-consulting.co.uk
  2. 2. The New Order Replaces The Fire Precautions Act 1971 The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 as amended 1999 Fire Certificates
  3. 3. The Order Requires fire precautions to be put in place ‘where necessary’ and to the extent that is reasonable and practicable in the circumstances Responsibility for compliance rests with the ‘Responsible Person’. This is the employer / owner or any other person who has control of any part of the premises
  4. 4. Responsible Person If you are the Responsible Person and employ five or more people you must carry out a fire risk assessment and record your findings
  5. 5. Duties Under the Order Appoint one or more competent persons Provide employees with clear fire risk information Consult employees & others Establish a suitable way of contacting the emergency services Provide fire precautions information Ensure fire equipment is maintained Employees Must Co-Operate
  6. 6. Help and Advice The Government has published eleven documents providing guidance for the various types of premises covered by the new legislation. These can be downloaded from www.communities.gov.uk Offices and Shops Premises providing Sleeping Accommodation Residential Care Small and Medium Places of Assembly
  7. 7. Help and Advice Large Places of Assembly Factories and Warehouses Theatres and Cinemas Educational Premises Healthcare Premises (responsibility of the Department of Health) Transport Premises and Facilities Open Air Events
  8. 8. Enforcement The local fire and rescue authority has the power to inspect your premises They will look for evidence that you have carried out a suitable fire risk assessment and acted on it
  9. 9. The Statutory Bar The statutory bar applies to new or refurbished buildings where plans have been approved under the Building Regulations or an approved inspector's initial notice has been accepted and where the fire authority deem that the building requires a fire certificate under the Fire Precautions Act
  10. 10. How It Works Plans should be sent to the fire authority via the building control body. Having been consulted by the building control body the fire authority, under the Fire Precautions Act 1971, cannot then require further fire safety measures for means of escape from the building on occupation, i.e. the statutory bar is applied
  11. 11. Building Regulations However, if the fire authority is satisfied that the fire precautions are inadequate for means of escape, and that these were not subject to Building Regulations approval, or were not known at the time of approval, then the fire authority is not barred from making additional requirements
  12. 12. Statutory Bar In practical terms in all but a few premises the statutory bar has ceased to be of effect. This makes it all the more important that consultation between building control bodies and fire authorities should result in a consensus on the fire safety aspects of building work at the earliest possible stage during the design and execution of a building project
