The introduction of the Fire Safety Order 2005 within England and Wales replaces and amalgamates previous fire safety legislation to impose a duty on “responsible persons” to carry out a fire risk assessments of the premises and ensure it is regularly reviewed.

Where the premises are licensed, or where five or more persons are employed, the responsible person must maintain records of assessments made and measures taken.
CSN have carried out fire risk assessments on behalf of responsible persons where the responsible person feels they are not competent to carry out the task themselves. Premises previously inspected include office buildings, higher education premises and the communal areas of large multi-tenanted residential developments.

We have also previously carried out fire risk assessments of hospital premises on behalf of local health authorities to the standard prescribed within Health Technical Memorandum No 86.
