13. Review arrangements

  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that the fire risk assessment process should identify all fire hazards; however, the written assessment must record the significant findings

  • Management and staff are tasked by the Association instructions and policies to constantly review and consider fire safety. Incidents and near misses are reported and acted upon. Reports initiate reviews and any necessary revisions to standards and policies. Reviews take place if a new or increased risk is introduced to the premises and as a maximum bi-annually.

  • NB If a fire or "near miss" occurs the risk assessment may be out of date or inadequate and should be reviewed.
