Internal Fire Risk Assessments
• FPA-certified fire risk assessments
• Full compliance with latest UK regulations
• Fulfil your statutory obligations as Responsible Person
• Conducted in tandem with external FRA
The MAF Associates team contains fully qualified Fire Risk Assessors, trained and certified by the Fire Protection Association. Our straightforward and comprehensive FRA reports include details of any issues identified and how they can be rectified, including photography, to ensure that your building is 100% compliant with the latest fire regulations.
The Regulatory Reform Order 2005 places a legal obligation on the building owner, manager or occupier, aka the Responsible Person, to carry out a detailed Fire Risk Assessment of their premises. The basic guidance has not changed under the provisions of the Fire Safety Act 2021, except for the requirement to ensure the effectiveness of entrance doors to each residential unit and to check that compartmentation has not been compromised.
If you fail to commission a full internal Fire Risk Assessment of your premises, you will be in breach of law and could be liable to criminal prosecution.
Other affects to your business will relate to your Insurance Company. Should you suffer a fire at your premises, your insurance company will inspect your documentation to make sure you have been compliant to current regulations. If the insurance company deems you to have been non-compliant with legal requirements this will create difficulties with your claim.
