In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’.

We have an excellent team to assist you with Fire Safety, including carrying out your Fire Risk Assessment (FRA). They are a legal requirement and can help your business to identify (and overcome) possible dangers and risks. There are five steps to completing a Fire Risk Assessment:
Your Fire Risk Assessments must be up to date. When visiting your premises, the Fire Officer will ask to see a copy of your Fire Risk Assessment. Failure to have a suitable, sufficient and up to date, Fire Risk Assessment in place could result in enforcement action being taken against your company. We can carry out Fire Risk Assessments for you – we work to the nationally recognised standard PAS79: 2012
Don’t get caught on the back foot by the Fire Officer – we can help you to take a proactive approach to fire safety. We will ensure that you have a Fire Risk Assessment in place and that you are keeping suitable and sufficient records to show that you are managing fire safety at your premises.
The Fire and Rescue services are visiting more organisations and checking their fire safety arrangements, particularly their fire risk assessment. Lack of a Fire Risk Assessment is leading to enforcement action.
Failure to address the essential responsibilities of completing fire risk assessments means that businesses are not only breaking the law but also failing to manage the hazards at their premises.

I would just like to say thank you to LRB Consulting, and to Christian especially, for his great work today on our fire safety training.
This has been great for everyone involved. My staff at City Gate including myself were very impressed with Christian’s knowledge and with the training.
