The Responsible Person is legally obliged to conduct a Fire Risk Assessment to identify the precautions needed to comply with the legislation and to implement and maintain a fire management plan. This assessment must consider the effect a fire will have on anyone in or around the premises, take into account the safety of fire fighters and be reviewed regularly. B38 Group incorporate this as part of their fire safety services, designed to keep your business safe.
The Responsible Person must provide adequate means of fire detection and fire-fighting. They must ensure that emergency exits and exit routes must be kept clear at all times, and that equipment, exits and exit routes are clearly signed. Employees and contractors must be provided with relevant information – and also have their own legal obligations. For example, all employees must be provided with suitable training on how to use the equipment and what to do in the event of fire.
All equipment must be maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and British Standards. The Responsible Person must appoint a competent person to assist in undertaking these fire precautions. This can be a third party quality assured company such as B38 Facilities Management Ltd.
