Firesafe Solutions (UK) Ltd is available to provide legally correct, sensible advice and assistance to commercial organisations that are being targeted by enforcement authorities.
The Fire Authority in the area the premises is located is the enforcement authority for the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and is able to issue Prohibition, Enforcement and Alteration Notices on workplaces as well as prosecute for failures which would place relevant persons are serious risk.
As the responsible person you have 21 days from date of issue, to appeal against a Notice and Firesafe Solutions (UK) Ltd are experienced in assisting commercial organisations with these problems.
We can offer independent advice to check if the Notice is legally correct or whether the issues raised are unreasonable.
Firesafe Solutions (UK) Ltd have carried out this role countless times and defended clients all the way to the Crown Court. In each case, we have managed to acquire a far better outcome for the client than had they not been defended. Our basis for this comment is that on many occasions we have managed to get the Fire Authority to retract or alter the Notice and in one case where the client was threatened with action in the Crown Court, the Fire Authority offered a caution instead of proceeding.
Of course, there are occasions when it would be foolish to fight a Fire Authority on an indefensible case. Where this is identified, we will inform the client and advise them on the best course of action. This honest and fair approach, we believe is how clients should be treated.
If you have received correspondence from the Fire Service which is causing you concern, call us immediately on 0845 456 5121 for some immediate free advice.
