Legionella and Fire Safe Services, situated in Britannia Way, has emphasised its critical importance, saying non-compliance can lead to hefty fines or imprisonment.

Failure to comply also puts others at serious risk.

Upcoming changes in Fire Safety guidelines, effective from October 1, 2023, will impact local governments and housing providers and landlords.

The changes stem from the Building Safety Act 2022 and will amend the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, necessitating comprehensive fire risk assessment records for all premises, irrespective of their size.

In the wake of the tragic Grenfell incident, the company said it is paramount that appropriate fire safety measures are met for every business and landlord.

Managing Director Steve Morris said “I really want to support local businesses. We understand the cost concerns faced by owners and, as such, we have designed a programme to be cost-effective while ensuring legal compliance and safety.

"The comprehensive scheme not only provides expert guidance but also manages the entire process with regards to Legionella and Fire Safety, giving business owners the reassurance that their buildings are also safe.”
