Fire prevention and management in the workplace

It is a legal requirement for all non-domestic buildings, which includes communal areas of blocks of flats, to have a fire risk assessment in place.

Fire doors are a vital piece of equipment and with additional requirements regarding inspection coming into force in January 2023.

We provide a full range of other safety services including such areas as Surveys and Inspections, Fire Risk Management, Training and Building Safety Management.

Fire Risk Assessments

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 it is a legal requirement for all non-domestic buildings, which includes communal areas of blocks of flats, to have a fire risk assessment in place.

If you own, manage or operate a business this law applies to you. The types of buildings affected include offices, care homes, sheltered housing, communal areas in blocks of flats, hotels and retail premises amongst others.

Whilst it is the Managing Agent, landlord or employer who is responsible for making sure that a fire risk assessment is completed to the correct standard, most employ the services of a professional assessor.

When choosing an assessor it is essential that they are able to demonstrate the necessary competence to complete a fire assessment for the particular type of building being assessed.

Arden Fire Health & Safety are registered on the BAFE SP205 Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment Scheme and have many years of experience in carrying out high quality fire risk assessments in a variety of buildings including care homes, sheltered accommodation, blocks of flats, offices and Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO).

Fire Door Inspections

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 it is a legal requirement to maintain fire doors so they perform as they were intended and protect people from the affects of smoke and fire.

Fire doors are a vital piece of equipment and with additional requirements regarding inspection coming into force in January 2023 now is the perfect time to discuss your fire door inspection needs with us.

Any residential building, where there are two or more dwellings e.g., flats or student accommodation, which is over 11metres in height must have all communal fire doors inspected on a quarterly basis and all flat, bedsit or room doors that lead onto a common escape route must be inspected on an annual basis.

All of our Fire Door Inspectors are qualified to a minimum Level 3 in The Inspecting and Testing of Fire Resisting Door Installations.
