Fire risk assessments: how often must they be done?
There are no specific time periods in law for how often fire risk assessments must be carried out or reviewed....
To be eligible for the waking watch relief fund a building must:
- be located in England
- be a residential building
- be over 17.70m in height
- have an unsafe cladding system (e.g. Aluminium Composite Material or High Pressure Laminate)
- Have a Waking Watch in place identified and agreed by either a Competent person (as described in part 2 of the Simultaneous Evacuation guidance) or via Fire and Rescue Service intervention to support a move to a simultaneous evacuation fire safety strategy, and Waking Watch costs are being passed on to leaseholders as a result of the terms of the lease.
For Social sector buildings to be eligible for the fund the registered provider must evidence that waking watch costs have been or will be passed on to leaseholders and that the cost of installing a fire alarm system will also fall on leaseholders on a proportionate basis if not covered by the fund.
