How Prepared Are You For The Changes?
On January 23 2023, the new Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 come into force under Article 24 of the Fire Safety Order. They were introduced as an important step towards implementing the recommendations of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry. This law imposes new requirements on the persons responsible for fire safety in multi-occupied residential properties.
While this new legislation has been known about for some time, and like any changes, it may present challenges for organisations that need to get ready and manage the transition.
At Ligtas, our goal is to support our clients with the question are we safe and then provide them with consultancy and services which enable them to demonstrate that.
These changes mean building owners, managers, and responsible persons need to ensure that they know what needs to be done and how to implement these changes effectively. This means not just being compliant but considering the well-being of your building users and asking yourself – are we really safe?
We understand that any preparation and subsequent implementation of new fire safety measures can be a time-consuming, costly and challenging task. Naturally, you probably don’t want to hear this. But having said that, if you approach it logically, you will soon know what is needed and how to approach it in the most effective way.
We believe that the best way forward is not just with your compliance hat on and looking to tick some boxes but to undertake internal due diligence first so that you have a better idea of what you want to ask your Ligtas consultant. After which, you can implement a plan which provides you with the best way forward for your organisation.
To that end, this webinar has been designed to help you prepare for the changes.
The goal is to understand what is needed and how to make your fire strategies and plans accessible to your stakeholders. In addition, you will be actively using these as effective tools for ongoing fire risk management.
