- Last week's blog began looking at examples of good practice and how you, as Landlord or person responsible for fire safety in blocks of flats can make improvements. This week, we'll continue in that theme, concentrating on good practice and record keeping.
- While the idea of improving your fire protection provision in a block of flats might sound expensive, it may be that there are ways of doing so without breaking the bank. In this blog, we will take a quick look at that and then move on to look at examples of good practice, which can be implemented without capital outlay and allow you to demonstrate due diligence.
- When considering alterations, works and improvements to your block of flats, it is most often the successful completion that is at the forefront of your mind. However, changes of this kind - whether they are large-scale works carried out by contractors on-site, or minor works carried out by the residents themselves - can cause problems which will need your consideration and foresight.
- The last few blogs have been looking at the importance of maintenance and testing of the various elements of the fire protection strategy within your blocks of flats. This week, we're looking particularly at monitoring potential hazards in the common parts and reviewing and auditing fire safety standards.

How important is it that we complete a fire risk assessment?
For fire prevention and fire safety, it's a must. It will help you to protect your staff, visitors, customers or occupants from the dangers of fire.
Legally, it's an obligation. Owners and commercial tenants of premises that are not covered by a current and relevant fire risk assessment run the risk of prosecution by the enforcing authorities. This can result in fines of up to £100,000, or even a jail sentence if a fire were to occur and you were found to have not taken all preventative measures.
In terms of insurance, if there was fire or smoke damage and you had not undertaken a fire risk assessment report; your insurers could refuse to pay and you may invalidate your cover.
What kind of premises can use this online fire risk self-assessment system?
This single or multi user platform is levelled at commercial landlords, property portfolios, small to medium sized enterprises and entities of more than five occupants, over one or multiple locations, as well as public visitor or meeting places.
Such enterprises include offices, shops, restaurants, hotels, b&bs, light industrial units and warehousing. Other entities include semi public premises such as pubs, clubs, church halls, amenity centres, nurseries, healthcare clinics and surgeries.
More complicated premises such as care homes, hospitals, large schools, shopping malls, or very large buildings that might have mixed use, may need a more comprehensive Fire Risk Assessment and should contact us to discuss further.
Straight forward Corporate property portfolios however are also suited to this platform. For further information please click here.
