Following the publication last May of the government’s Fire Reform White Paper, a number of reforms to fire safety came into effect last month (January) under the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022.
Regulation 10 lies at the heart of tenant safety. Responsible persons for all multi-occupied residential buildings in England over 11m high will be required to undertake quarterly checks on all communal doors, as well as annual inspections on entrance doors for flats that lead onto communal areas like hallways.
With dozens of doors even in relatively small housing blocks, it can be a time-consuming task to go round and check each one annually, let alone quarterly. However, given the difference that it can make in a critical situation – literally between life and death – it’s essential that all responsible officers have the tools and resources to meet the basic requirements.
Cloud-based technology, like Prop-FS developed by Propeller, is a fast and effective way to fully manage these checks and more, with a fully auditable trail. With a user-friendly mobile app, that feeds into an organisation’s central database in real time, the system is quick to get up and running.
