Fire Risk Assessment

Are you complying with current Fire Safety Regulations?

To comply with the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 it is a legal requirement to conduct a fire risk assessment. Company Owners, Directors and external Managing Agents could face imprisonment and potentially personal prosecutions for non-compliance. You are also at risk of invalidating your business insurance cover.

Don’t take the risk.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) came into force on 1st October 2006.

In order to comply with the order you must:

Carry out a fire risk assessment identifying any possible dangers and risks;

Consider who may be especially at risk;

Get rid of or reduce the risk from fire as far as is reasonably possible and provide general fire precautions to deal with any possible risk left;

Take other measures to make sure there is protection if flammable or explosive materials are used or stored;

Create a plan to deal with any emergency findings; and review your findings when necessary.

Ensure that your business is completely covered and meeting legal requirements by booking your fire risk assessment today.

Legionella Testing

In accordance with Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations, ACOP L8, HSG274, HTM04-01 and the Health and Safety at Work Act, it is a legal requirement to protect your staff and visitors from exposure to controllable risks. Regardless of the size of the property or water system, water hygiene is your responsibility.

A legionella risk assessment of hot and cold water systems should be carried out to identify sources of potential microbiological growth. Routine Legionella water testing should be carried out as advocated by the risk assessment, to minimise bacterial proliferation and dissemination.

For example:

The risk assessment report needs to show where the site is and the duty holders name. The report will list all water systems and the points of entry.  It should list all water assets and have an individual asset risk assessment for each asset and the reports should show a management plan for each asset and a management plan for the site.

Problem areas when testing for Legionella

Any water system, with the right environmental conditions, could be a source for Legionella bacteria growth.  There is a reasonable foreseeable Legionella risk if your water system;

  1. has a water temperature between 20-45 deg C
  2. creates and/or spreads breathable droplets, eg. aerosol created by cooling towers or water droplets or even taps
  3. stores and/or re-circulates water
  4. is likely to contain a source of food for the organism, eg. presence of sludge, scale or fouling.

Our water hygiene consultants provide a comprehensive sampling service to ensure your water systems are safe and you are fully compliant with the regulations.
