We provide professional fire risk assessments In Oxfordshire (undertaken on any premises of any size) required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
If you are an employer or in control of any part of a commercial premise (including rental properties, care homes etc) you have a legal obligation to carry out a detailed fire risk assessment of that premise to identify the risks and hazards regarding fire safety and how these can be reduced or managed.
Landlords and Agents who rent out residential properties also have to have Landlord HMO fire risk assessments to meet the requirements of HMO licensing. Different Councils requirements will vary and in Oxford the rules are particularly stringent, due to the high level of rented accommodation within the City.
The responsible person of the organisation can carry out a fire risk assessment for the premises. However, if you do not feel competent to fulfil this legal obligation by identifying and assessing the potential risks within your premises, Dukes Fire Safety Ltd has the expertise do this for you.
If you are a Landlord or Letting Agent we are able to provide Landlord HMO Fire Risk Assessments and residential risk assessments for you.
