Fire safety risk assessment

Every landlord has a legal requirement to carry out a fire safety risk assessment in accordance to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 procedures on their property.

During the first landlord’s forum held in March 2007, it became evident that some of the landlords were unsure on how to carry out a risk assessment and as a result, an informal training day was arranged specifically for this purpose.

The event was organised by the Isle of Anglesey County Council’s Environmental Health’s Private Sector Housing section and conducted by the North Wales Fire Service. 

Briefly, a landlord of a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) in particular, has a duty to make sure that their property has:

  • adequate fire precautions and means of escape from fire
  • automatic fire alarm and detection system
  • safe electrical installation
  • system of emergency lighting
  • fire fighting equipment

The Housing Enforcement Team recommends that installations and maintenance of systems are done in accordance to British Standards 5839 – 1:2002 (Design, installation, commissioning and maintenance), 5839 – 6:2004 (Design, installation and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems in dwellings) and 5266 – 1:1998 (Emergency lighting).

Further training has been held on the 1st August 2017.  Should you have any interest in this course, please contact the Environmental Health’s Private Sector Housing section.
