Tenants Fire Risk Assessment Review & Audit
What is it and why is it required?
Fire safety issues within a tenant’s demise will impact on the overall safety of the building or site. It is essential that tenant fire risk assessments adequately take into consideration the risk to life from fire.
It is quite common for tenants to be unaware of the need for a fire risk assessment or what is required of a full fire risk assessment. A tenant fire risk assessment review ensures all tenants are undertaking legally-required fire risk assessments in order to identify and manage fire risks to protect lives and assets.
What are the benefits?
The tenants’ fire risk assessment review provides an analysis of the suitability and sufficiency of the tenants’ fire risk assessments to check compliance with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (or Scottish equivalent) and can be a helpful aid in demonstrating landlords and tenants mutual coordination on fire safety to the enforcement authorities. By carrying out regular tenants’ fire risk assessment reviews, tenants become more familiar about their responsibilities with regard to fire safety, making it easier to procure up-to-date fire risk assessments in the future.
The ultimate aim of the tenants’ fire risk assessment review is to reduce the risk of fire and ensure asset and life protection.
How can the S2 Partnership help?
One of our highly-experienced fire consultants will carry out a paper review of each tenant’s fire risk assessments, in order to assess adequacy, in light of the legislative requirements. The assessor will produce a brief written report of significant findings from each review, including missing or inadequate fire assessments, sections of which can be presented to individual tenants.
Where tenants do not have a fire risk assessment for their demise, the S2 Partnership can also assist in undertaking these upon request.
