Building safety

All workplaces and commercial premises have a legal duty to make sure they are safe for everyone who uses or visits them. Our Building Safety Team work with owners and those responsible for these buildings, offering help and advice on what they need to do to meet their obligations. The team also carry out inspections and audits and provide guidance on fire risk assessments, as well as identifying, investigating and helping to reduce risk. KFRS also have a duty to enforce the law where there is an immediate risk to life, or where all attempts to assist those responsible have been unsuccessful.
