who is responsible for fire safety assessments?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I live in an apartment block. There is an OMC and management company.

Who is responsible to carry out regular fire safety inspections? The management is not doing it and I don't know if my apartment (mainly the fire doors) are compliant or need to be updated.

Thank you

The management company on behalf of the OMC, who have the legal responsibility and liability. Even with a building less than 11m they are responsible for assessing the suitability of flat front doors, the only difference for higher buildings is there is a set inspection frequency as oppose to a risk based one.

thank you. I think my door is not compliant, I'm trying to find out and I'm willing to make it right at my expenses, but if in the meantime something happens I don't want to be considered liable.

Should I tell the management company or is that just going to look for troubles as we should have said it earlier?
