Vicinitee brings Fire Risk Assessment to the desktop14 December 2006
A pioneering property management and community website has introduced a comprehensive online assessment procedure, designed to take the strain out of complying with new fire safety regulations.
Vicinitee has launched a detailed, step-by-step guide to enable owners or managers of business premises to identify what steps need to be taken to meet the Regulatory Reform Site Safety Order.
Designed in a user-friendly format, the process takes around 30 minutes to complete and, at the end of the assessment, users are advised whether they meet the current safety requirements or need to contact a fire safety professional.
Bob Flood, Managing Director of Vicinitee said: 'Under the new Regulatory Reform Site Safety Order - introduced in October 2006 - the building occupier or a responsible person must carry out an annual risk assessment on the fire safety of the property.
'Organisations now need to be able to demonstrate conformance and, as a result, we have created this online assessment procedure, to offer a comprehensive and accessible solution.
'It provides a complete overview of all areas relating to the new regulations, including evacuation procedures, access and egress, fire training and fire maintenance.'
This latest offering from Vicinitee.com is just one of the many features offered by the website for building managers, designed to drive forward operational efficiencies and service enhancements in property management online.
