Active Fire Management is having a busy month of July where considerable time and resources are being put into place to carry out annual fire risk assessment reviews for the second, third and forth year running for some customers. Qualified fire risk assessors are currently reviewing properties nationwide in accordance with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order.
Our nationwide customers recognise that fire risk assessments are a continuous process and must be monitored and audited. New and existing control measures should be maintained to make sure they are still working effectively. Furthermore, if changes are introduced into your workplace, your original fire risk assessment may not address any new hazards or risk arising from them. For this reason it’s important that fire risk assessments are reviewed and revised regularly.
The assessments, which began the planning stage in June 2012, commenced in early July and will cover the North, South, East and West of the country for a variety of customers from care homes to office blocks.
