Clients can be assured that the person undertaking the work is the actual person who has the knowledge and know how and not someone who just passed through a Fire Safety Specialist Department for a couple of years to poplulate thier CV, one of the things you can do to help verify competency is by checking that the assessors name appears under a recognised register of fire risk of assessors and not merely an employee of the company listed. In relation to training check that the Fire Warden courses has received third party approval along with the use of third party approved trainers.

Care Home Sector Specific Guide Revised Feb 2014

 

 The guidance is issued by Scottish Ministers in terms of section 61(2) of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005. It supersedes the February 2008 version of the guidance and takes account of the results of a public consultation on the content. There are a substantial number of editorial changes in this revision aimed at improving dutyholders' understanding of the guidance.

 

Action Plans

As from March 2013 Fire Safety Enforcement Officers in Scotland will likely require/ask for a written action plan based on the significant findings outlined in any fire risk assessement, this will form the platform for subsequent visits by Scottish Fire & Rescue Service Community Safety Officers to check progress on the resolution of significant findings highlighted in previous fire risk assessments.
