Hotel Fire Risk Assessment and Consultancy Advice
Active Fire Management’s consultancy services were called upon this month to assist a hotel in Brighton who were acting upon recommendations made by their Local Authority Inspecting Officer. One of the recommendations was to ensure that a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment was carried out as the existing fire risk assessment for the premises had been deemed inadequate. As an added service, a Fire Safety Policy was also provided to the hotel including operational arrangements, staff duties and responsibilities, fire instructions, evacuation, fire prevention, fire equipment and fire training arrangements to ensure that the hotel and its employees remain compliant with the relevant statutory requirements and guidance documents in future.
Company Director Kerry Lawrence said “We were very pleased to have been able to react so quickly to this customer’s needs as we provided the fire risk assessment on the same day. Many businesses come to us with similar requests and we can always ensure peace of mind that our fire risk assessments will meet with Local Authority requirements”.
Numerous other fire risk assessments have also been carried out this month for a number of Housing Association premises and also within a large, five storey premises of mixed use including retail, entertainment, offices and sleeping accommodation.
