Scottish Fire and Rescue Service recommend BAFE for fire risk assessments
Thursday 27th July 2017
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) have now launched a new document on their business safety pages regarding fire risk assessments.
“Both the Scottish Government and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service recommend that duty holders who wish to contract the services of external fire safety risk assessors verify that the assessor is competent in fire risk assessment. One way of verifying the competence of an individual assessor is to select the assessor from a list of competent fire risk assessors maintained by a professional body or a UKAS accredited third party certification body.”
The BAFE Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment (SP205) scheme is highlighted as one of the recommended ways to locate competent organisations that can provide the crucial task of completing a quality fire risk assessment.
This is now in addition to BAFE SP205 being included in the Fire Risk Assessment Competency Council’s ‘Guide to Choosing a Competent Fire Risk Assessor’ which can be downloaded here.
