Are you thinking of installing a fire detection alarm system in your building premises?

Or perhaps you are dissatisfied with your existing service provider. If you are then call us to receive fair professional advice. You can be reassured that all fire alarm works undertaken by us is in compliance with BS5839 and that BAFE certificates are issued for you to provide to your insurers.

And remember that by using a BAFE registered company it gives the appointed person responsible for fire safety in your organisation the confidence that they are using a competent service provider.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which came into effect in October 2006 applies to all commercial premises, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation. Under the FSO, every business must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.

The FSO places legal obligation on the ‘responsible person’ to provide premises where their employees and any other relevant person is safe from fire and the effects of fire. The ‘responsible person’ is the employer, right? The answer is Yes and No. An employer is only responsible for the fire safety arrangements that they can control. If responsibility for fire safety arrangements have been delegated such as a business operating within part of larger premises both are the ‘responsible person’. 

For further advice on your obligation and compliance with fire safety arrangements call Caldera.
