OJ Health and Safety provides businesses with a wide range of services to help deal with Fire Prevention .
On October 1st 2006, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) came into force. This is a major change in legislation putting the legal requirement to create Fire Risk Assessments upon ‘The Responsible Person’ within a business and scrapping the old fire certificates which historically had been completed by the local Fire Service.
The new fire regulations were introduced to simplify matters, to take the pressure and responsibility away from the Fire Service and make it more straight forward for Employers to understand what was required from them.
The order applies to all commercial premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs).
The law applies to you if you are:
Fire remains potentially the most damaging and disruptive event that any business can face. A devastating fire will almost inevitably lead to loss of production or productive activity which can lead to a loss of orders, a loss of customers and mostly, the loss of jobs.
A significant amount of business simply never recover from the effects of a large fire.
At OJ Safety we put our clients at the heart of everything we do, recognising that each one is different and has individual needs. Our assessments are tailored to your business and out efforts are focused on building an easy-to-use, action-based document.
