Does your London Pub, Restaurant, Night Club or Events Venue have a compliant Fire Safety Risk Assessment? If the answer is no you could have your licence revoked!!

A Pub has had its licence revoked due to Fire Safety failings. It was found that the premise had no Fire Safety Risk Assessment and that the automatic Fire detection system and Emergency Lighting were not being maintained. Added to this inadequate Staff training and failure to maintain Fire Fighting equipment were other areas of Fire Safety concern.

The Pub was served with an informal ‘Notice’, which required a Fire Safety Risk Assessment to be performed and Emergency Lighting and a fully operational Fire detection system to be reinstated.

Another visit from the Authorities confirmed that no Fire Safety Risk Assessment had been carried out, and that the Emergency Lighting and Fire Detection had not been maintained as previously required.

As a result a Priority Enforcement ‘Notice’ relating to non compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 was issued.

At a licensing hearing the licence holder for the premises, had the premises licence revoked.

Licence holders should recognise the importance of taking positive action to keep their Staff and members of the Public safe from Fire.
