Let Me In, Get Me Out

 

Every time we improve access to buildings, we need to review fire safety and evacuation procedures.  There are gaps and conflicts between access and egress which need to be filled and resolved.  We can provide an access audit report and fire risk assessment for your premises to help you to look after your customers and fullfill your legal duties.

 

How do you notify people who are deaf or with hearing loss of fire alarm activation?

Are people who are blind or partially sighted familiar with all the escape routes?

Are there refuges with emergency voice communication (EVC) for people with reduced mobility who cannot manage stairs?

Are your wardens aware of the adverse effects of the fire alarm on people with cognitive disability?

 

The Equality Act 2010 requires that you do not discriminate against people with disabilities and premises where you provide goods, facilities and services should be accessible.

 

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) requires that you must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure everyone can safely escape from premises, if there is a fire.

An initiative, supported by

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service

to provide a holistic approach to access and emergency egress to:

 

Encourage Access Consultants and Fire Risk Assessors to work together. 

 

Remind premises owners and Managers of their duties under the RRO.

 

Providing 7 point briefings on gaps and conflicts.
