Fire protection systems for facilities management companies
One of the responsibilities of a facilities management company is to make sure the building they are looking after is fully equipped to deal with the outbreak of a fire.
They will go to a third party contractor to source the correct fire protection systems and get these installed safely. This is where Surefire can come in to help with the fire safety requirements of any building a facilities management company is responsible for.
Our highly qualified engineers and technicians will also ensure that fire protection systems are serviced and maintained so as to offer optimum performance at all times.
This demonstrates that we are able to help in a number of areas, including supporting facilities managers with advice on their role.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) makes reference to the definition of the “responsible person” and states:
- In a workplace, the employer is the responsible person if the workplace is under its control.
- In a workplace not under the employer’s control or another premises (where the Order applies), the responsible person is determined by whether the person has control over the premises in connection with the carrying out of a trade, business or undertaking.
- In premises where the above person does not have control over the premises in connection with a trade, business or undertaking then the owner is deemed to be the responsible person.
Therefore in some circumstance the facilities management company could be deemed to be in control of a workplace. However in most circumstances the business owner would be the responsible person.
