To provide a safe building environment
We’re here to help you. There are 2 key pieces of legislation affecting the provision and maintenance of doors that you need to be aware of with regard to Accessibility, Fire safety and general Health & Safety obligations.
We can assist you in meeting the differing and potentially conflicting requirements of the regulations in a cost-effective way to ensure that your business is safe and legal.
Equality Act 2010
Formerly known as the Disability Discrimination Act, this legislation places a duty of care upon all service providers to remove the physical barriers that prevent people with disabilities from accessing a service. It requires that you make reasonable adjustments to your premises where a physical feature makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for any person to make use of any services you offer to the public.
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Under the Fire Safety Order, the “responsible person” for the building must complete their own risk assessment for the fire safety of the building and put in place any measures resulting from the risk assessment. Failure to do so could result in a fine or imprisonment (or both) and could invalidate any building insurance.
