What is a fire safety audit?

We may visit your premises and undertake a fire safety audit which is usually prearranged and all fire safety inspectors will be in uniform and carry identification.

The audit is an examination of the premises and relevant documents to ascertain how the premises are being managed regarding fire safety. The inspector may also wish to talk to members of staff to confirm their level of fire safety awareness.

The emphasis is on the responsible person demonstrating they have met the duties required by the fire safety order. For this reason we may ask to see the following documents as evidence.

The above list is not exhaustive and other evidence may be required depending on the circumstances.
