Compliance gap analysis products
Here at D2 Fire and Security Ltd we are dedicated to ensuring complete compliance and safety of our clients. We have created a range of innovative Gap Analysis products as we believe strongly that a focus should be placed on how systems function and their compliance in emergency conditions, not just on the “risk” of something happening.
Current projects include investigations and creation of a Gap Analysis report relating to fire alarm historical installation standards at large commercial premises. The task is to identify where these may fall short from the latest recommended practice as defined within BS5839:2013 / BS7671.
Gap Analysis works are carried out in generally “non-invasive” technical verification of the systems individually to identify where obvious non-compliance of the existing installations to the latest standards may exist.
Fire Risk assessments
In the UK it is a legal requirement for a fire risk assessment to be carried out on all premises where people could be working. This is under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales, the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 in Scotland and the Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 in Northern Ireland.

The definition of the “responsible person” is typically the person who has primary responsibility for the premises. This could include facilities managers, owners of premises and managers of buildings.
In multi-tenanted buildings, each tenant has to carry out a fire risk assessment of their premises, and coordinate it with the fire risk assessment that the landlord has carried out of their areas.
In blocks of flats, the fire risk assessment needs to cover the common areas (such as stairs and corridors) but not necessarily the individual flats.
The fire risk assessment has to be carried out to a competent standard. Therefore, it is best to employ a professional fire risk assessor to carry the assessment out.
