More Information

If you are the ‘Responsible Person’ for Fire Safety within your premise or your organisation, YOU ARE LEGALLY OBLIGED to have up to date Fire systems and procedures in place which include being in possession of a credible Fire Risk Assessment. On-going fire management systems should also be in operation with sufficient evidence available to demonstrate compliance is in operation.

If you are confident of your present legal position, you should be able to honestly answer YES to all of the following questions:

  • Do you have a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment?
  • Was the Fire Risk Assessment completed by a 'Competent Person'?
  • Have you implemented the significant findings of the assessment?
  • Do you have the required fire safety documentation such as: Fire Policy, Emergency Plan & Fire Evacuation Procedures?
  • Where appropriate, are you carrying out adequate fire training to your workforce?
  • Do you have evidence that you are managing your fire safety regime to the required standards?
  • Do you have up to date records for the maintenance of fire equipment and other fire safety regimes e.g. fire drills, testing of fire alarms, training etc?
  • Do you periodically review and revise the Fire Risk Assessment as required?
IF you have answered NO or you DON’T KNOW to any one of the questions, it is highly probable you will NOT be complying with the Fire Regulations leaving you vulnerable and wide open to enforcement action, and even prosecution.
If an organisation is unsure if they are complying with the Fire Regulations, this could be a significant threat which without doubt during a Fire Audit could attract potential Enforcement Action being taken by the Fire Authority. For a one off fee from as low as £295.00 FCMS can complete a Gap Analysis of your existing Fire Compliance status.

This will involve a member of the FCMS team coming to site to complete a review of the Fire Management Systems and Procedures presently in operation within the organisation which will include evaluating the quality of the Fire Risk Assessment.

The outcome of the Gap Analysis will reveal any non-compliant items which FCMS would easy to understand and transparent. A short report will be compiled which based on the compliance level identified will include a step by step approach to move forward to a point where a ‘Peace of Mind’ solution can be reached for Compliance with the Fire Regulations to be evidenced and the threat of Enforcement removed.

What’s Included:
  • Creation of a new Fire Policy – The ‘Responsible Person’ will be advised to read and endorse the content of the policy and once fully accepted and understood, they would be asked to sign the document.
  • Provision of a site specific Fire Emergency Plan.
  • Fire Evacuation Procedure based on the Fire Warden Sweep Search system and NOT the roll call.
  • Fire Equipment Maintenance Record sheets and processes as required.
  • All Fire Training for all staff with bespoke training provided as required.
  • Access to a number of sector specific elearning Fire Training packages.
  • Annual provision of an agreed number of 3 hour training workshops for Fire Wardens and senior managers (certificates will be awarded to all attendees – valid for 1 year).
  • Submission of hard copies of all reports in one of the FCMS Fire Management folders.
  • Access on to the FCMS Web Portal where other Fire Compliance documentation can be made available plus other guidance documents.
  • Remote assistance during the implementation of the Fire Regulations and (where required).
  • Remote liaison with the Fire Authority.
  • Award of a Certificate of Membership into the FCMS Fire Compliance Scheme.
  • Attendance to carry out a Fire Compliance Review and the Annual FRA Review for both Car Parks to ensure compliance is being maintained.

Monthly Payment Options:

There are two costing options to consider, Option 1 or 2 and both incorporate the following:

OPTION 1-Gold Package (1 year) £125 +VAT/per month

OPTION 2-Platinum Package (3 years)£100 +VAT/per month

Generally, membership into the Fire Compliance Scheme is an annually renewable relationship. As a member of the Scheme you will be contacted a month before expiry to arrange for an annual review of the certification process to be undertaken. In addition, the renewal of your membership will be agreed to ensure your overall compliance status is maintained.

During this phase, we will complete a new Fire Risk Assessment inspection of the building/structure highlighting all new items identified within a summary report which would also include any outstanding issues not closed out from the previous Fire Risk Assessment regime. On-going support would be continued with a new membership certificated being awarded covering the next 12 months.

This process is your assurance of on-going compliance being continued with the reassurance against the risks to your staff and your business enabling your ‘Reputation Risk’ to remain intact and protected.

Membership for renewal carries no obligation after the first year unless there is an agreement in operation for the 3 year Platinum package where the relationship could end after the completion of the third year. However, opting out carries a lot of responsibility and potential risk

If you are the ‘Responsible Person’ for Fire Safety within your premise or your organisation, YOU ARE LEGALLY OBLIGED to have an up to date, suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment and an on-going fire management system in operation. If you are confident of your present legal position, you should be able to honestly answer YES to all of the following questions:

The first and most important element of achieving compliance with the Fire Regulations is for an organisation to be in possession of a robust Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) which should be sufficiently robust to satisfy the scrutiny of both the Fire Authority (during a Fire Safety Audit), or indeed if the unthinkable happens and you have a fire, your Insurance Company.

Completing an FRA involves the following:

  • Attendance to site of an FCMS Fire Risk Specialist who is both experienced and qualified to complete the FRA.
  • Once completed, this will be followed by the submission of a hard copy report in an FCMS Fire Compliance folder.
  • Access will also be provided to the FCMS Web Portal where an electronic version will be available.

Protecting your companies ‘Reputational Risk’ can be a challenge, but in this case FCMS will come to site have a proven track record of creating cost effective results and are confident of resolving any issues identified during the process.

Once a building has had a Fire Risk Assessment, several things might require urgent attention. Fire Equipment upgrades or new installations may be required such as new Fire Alarms, Emergency Lighting. There may be too many Fire Extinguishers, or of the wrong type and location and the same with Fire Signage. Alternatively on-going support may be required with improving the passive fire protection affecting Fire Resisting walls, doors, floors and ceilings.

There are no simple issues, but they all need to be resolved to comply with the Fire Regulations. Time and time again we see clients so daunted by the demands of achieving compliance they spend too much money on the back of poor advice, over selling of equipment or simply don’t bother doing anything and brush the whole thing under the carpet hoping the problem will go away. It won’t…

With an FCMS specialist on board, we can completely project mange and oversee large projects. Our expertise will be working in your favour and we’ll be on your side – getting the right suppliers, the right balance of solutions, competitive prices and ultimately the most cost effective solutions available.
