Inline with our qualifications and accreditation London Fire Risk Assessments operate a Third Party Competent Person, Engagement Policy whereby no representation will be undertaken without written notification and acceptance of the Company’s Letter of Engagement. This is not only benefits ourselves but also our Clients in as much as under the Letter of Engagement once we have been engaged by the Client we are part responsible for the Fire Safety in regards to their premise. All of our actions in regards to the premise are then supported by our insurances.

London Fire Risk Assessments carry full personal and professional indemnity insurances.

The Letter of Engagement confirms the basis upon which we will act as a third party competent persons as Life Safety, Fire Risk Assessors/Auditors.

The letter details the nature and extent of the services which will be provided to the nominated Responsible Person, and/or their Representative.

In regards to Fire Risk Assessment a Fire Safety Inspection/audit of the identified Premise/Building will be carried out to enable the production of a fully compliant Fire Risk Assessment, Fire Safety Policy, Fire Emergency Plan and

Fire Safety Management Plan, to satisfy the requirements of all relevant guidance including the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Unless agreed otherwise, fees will be based upon the time spent on the affairs of the Responsible Person and/or their Representative. The charges will be divided between the actual Fire Safety Inspection/audit and the compiling, collating, preparation and presentation of the completed Fire Risk Assessment, Fire Safety Policy,

Fire Emergency Plan and Fire Safety Management Plan, referred to solely as the Fire Risk Assessment.

The Fire Risk Assessment and integral Fire Safety Policy, Fire Emergency and Fire Safety Management Plans, henceforth referred to solely as, the Fire Risk Assessment, will have due regard to both the nature of the Premise/Building and the use to which they are put. It is intended to assist the Responsible Person and/or their Representative, in meeting their legal obligations but does not in itself ensure or confirm compliance.

The Fire Risk Assessment endeavors to identify the hazards, risks and control measures associated with the Premise/Building and to identify the Significant Hazards and the relevant persons at risk from them.

The Responsible Person and/or their Representative should ensure that this is achieved.

The Fire Risk Assessment will be based upon good faith and will refer to areas, items, provisions and systems readily identifiable and available, and upon information provided by the Responsible Person and/or their Representative.

The Fire Safety Inspection/audit will be neither non-intrusive nor invasive and therefore, by necessity,

certain assumptions may be made and liability will be confined to specified hazards and risks.

The Assessor/Auditor will only be able to comment and report on the situation and circumstances as witnessed by, and/or advised to them, at the time of Inspection/audit.

It should be noted that it is the responsibility of the Responsible Person and/or their Representative to implement any required actions identified by the Fire Risk Assessment.

The Fire Risk Assessment is a continuous, live process and must be monitored and audited, reviewed and revised with any structural and material changes to the Premise/Building, the usage of, and any process carried out within it.

The Fire Risk Assessment should be reviewed with any significant changes to staff and occupancy, and following any “near miss” or incidence of Fire.

Any change could lead to new hazards and risks needing to be considered and no liability rests with the Assessor/Auditor for their work unless subsequent changes have been subjected to specific and separate assessment.

Not withstanding, The Fire Risk Assessment should be programmed for review at intervals not exceeding 12 twelve months.

The Responsible Person and/or their Representative should note that nothing within the Fire Risk Assessment overrides any requirements needed to comply with statutory obligations under the

Health and Safety at Work Act, 1974 and all associated Regulations and approved codes of practice.
