Businesses in London and Manchester must review their Fire Emergency Plans before they reopen after Lockdown to ensure Staff and members of the Public are kept safe.

Businesses’ across London and Manchester will be reopening after weeks of lockdown – but we still must adhere to the Covid-19 secure guidelines. Whilst this is of course a priority so to is reviewing the Fire Safety Emergency Plan for the Business!

Keeping Staff and members of the Public safe in an emergency is imperative and the existing Fire Safety Emergency Plan included in your Fire Safety Risk Assessment may not reflect the premises as it is today. The following are just a few points for the identified ‘Responsible Person’ to consider.

If you are operating a ‘one-way system’ in your premise, how does that affect your evacuation plan?

Assembly Point – does your existing Assembly Point allow enough room for people to social distance?

Are hand sanitiser stations or washing facilities on the means of escape and will they hinder the evacuation or re-entry into the building?

Have you changed the location of any storage in order to accommodate a one-way system, if so check that you have maintained a clear route through the means of escape.

If you need help reviewing your Fire Emergency Plan for your premise in London or Manchester or your Fire Safety Risk Assessment is out of date you should act now!

Some London Flats, Maisonettes and Houses which are not Private, Individual Dwellings and are sub-let may be required to have an Additional Licence for their London Borough!

If your property is in the following London Boroughs – Barnet, Brent, Camden, Ealing, Enfield, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Harrow, Havering, Hounslow, Kingston upon Thames, Lewisham, Newham Redbridge, Southwark, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, as from November 2020, there are additional licensing schemes in place.

The Housing Act 2004 gives Local Authorities the power to introduce additional HMO licensing schemes, enabling them to require the licensing of what is termed as HMO’s, Houses in Multiple Occupation, that do not meet the criteria for mandatory licensing.

On 12th February 2019 Haringey Council designated the whole Borough to be subject to additional HMO Licensing. The scheme became operative on 27th May 2019 and effectively extends licensing to all HMO’s in the borough by requiring the licensing of HMO’s occupied by three or four persons, and Section 257 Houses in Multiple Occupation.

A Section 257 House in Multiple Occupation is a Building converted into self-contained Flats where the works of conversion do not comply with the Building Regulations 1991 or subsequent regulations in force at the time of conversion, (or which has not been retrospectively upgraded to comply) and where less than two thirds of the flats are owner-occupied.

As a Premise which is licenced, these “traditional” HMO’s and the identified 257 Houses, require a Fire Safety Risk Assessment

This is not a scheme to generate more business, but London Fire Risk Assessments felt we had an obligation to identify this because, if the property is required to have, what is termed as an Additional or Selective License, and there is a failure to comply it is a criminal offence that can result in prosecution and a Fine, or Civil Penalty, of up to £30,000.

Information has been collected from London Property Licensing
