Audits and inspections seek to examine the premises, fire safety systems and relevant documents to ascertain how the premises are being managed regarding fire safety. The Fire Risk Management Associates (FRMA) engineer 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, FRMA experts may ask to see the following documents:
• A suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment by a competent person.
• Action plans related to any significant findings of the fire risk assessment.
• Emergency plans for the premises (what to do in the event of a fire).
