Yes it’s important that you carry out a Fire Risk Assessment on all your properties to ensure that your tenants are in the most safe environment as possible.
Under the Housing Act 2004 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, HMOs (Houses of multiple occupancy) are required to undertake fire risk assessments. Landlords should note that they are not expected to train tenants in fire safety, but that this is merely a document to outline where the hazards lie and how they can be avoided.
The number of first aiders or appointed persons you might need will depend on the circumstances of the organisation or work site.

We believe competence includes two factors – theoretical knowledge of the topic and hands on experience. Our consultants and tutors have a great amount of both. We also believe that
having experience in the right sector is key, when we assign a consultant to your business they will always have ‘on-the-job’ experience to relate first hand to the challenges you’re facing.
A full description of competency can be sent at request for any of our consultants or tutors.
Because not all of our clients require an annual fire risk assessment, we usually don’t include the cost of the fire risk assessment into the monthly fee.
