Surveys & Inspection
In the UK fire safety law applies to any building except the inside of people’s private houses or flats. It states that each building needs to duty holder or holders who are responsible for mitigating the risk of fire in all non-domestic buildings. This includes the common parts of flats, apartments and houses of multiple occupation. The duty holder is called the ‘responsible person’. This is typically the person, organisation or company that controls the building.
The responsible person must carry out a fire risk assessment and maintain a fire management plan.
It goes without saying that, in the event of a fire, it is critical that exit and entrance points not only provide a safe means of evacuation but are also engineered to provide an effective barrier against the spread of smoke and fire.
