There are over 500 primary fires in hospitals and medical care buildings in the UK each year. With such high figures and a large volume of staff and patients using the NHS each day, the risk to life is high. Therefore, it is important that fire safety management in the NHS is taken seriously.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that the responsible person carries out a “suitable and sufficient” assessment of the risks on the premises to ensure that there are suitable measures in place to help prevent, control or contain any potential fires to ensure that everyone in the premises is able to escape to a place of safety.
Pennington Choices’ Fire Safety Management experts provide competent and in-depth fire risk assessments, compartmentation surveys and fire door audits. We are unique in that we only offer surveys, audits or assessments and not the remediation of any issues identified. As a result of this, we provide an impartial service with no intention to benefit from any issues raised in our reports.
