物业管理公司为消防安全失败罚款80,000英镑

伦敦消防队检验员发现严重的消防安全缺陷两次访问Islington的Danbury Street的五层大楼,由EuroLets(英国)有限公司管理。在2016年访问之后,要求该公司应当解决关切的执法通知,随后被充分遵守。但是,后来访问然后发现了类似的缺陷对先前的检查。

该建筑由40多个独立的单位组成,让租户和检查揭示了包括在房屋入口处附近的可燃物质的缺陷;缺乏灭火器和标牌;门楔入;墙壁内的孔和无功能的火警。

根据监管改革(消防安全)秩序,欧洲欧元被指控10个独立的罪行,并公司进入所有费用内疚:

  • 未能取消预防措施;
  • 未能拥有合适和充分的火灾风险评估;
  • 未能确保适当的火灾安排;
  • 未能确保退出路线清除并解锁;
  • 未能确保适当的消防安全措施,并向员工和居民传达;
  • 未能维护和确保消防安全设备;
  • 未能提供具有足够的消防信息的员工;
  • 未能提供足够的安全培训;
  • 未能确保足够的结构舱;和
  • 关于第二种检查中的可燃物品的进一步充电。

法官发现,该公司缺乏适当的标准,而本组织内的严重和/或系统性失败将解决风险。欧洲欧元欧元被命令支付罚款60,000英镑(剩余费用没有单独的处罚),受害者附加费为170英镑,费用为20,000英镑。总计80,170英镑,以每月8,000英镑的价格支付超过10个月。

London Fire Brigade’s Assistant Commissioner for Fire Safety, Paul Jennings, said, “The combined effect of the deficiencies was that if a fire had started, there was a risk of an uncontrolled spread of heat, and smoke and flames affecting the whole premises, coupled with the only means of escape being overcome with smoke. In sentencing, the judge made it clear that she increased the fine because of the large number of residents that had been put at risk by the company’s lack of action to address concerns. We are pleased with the outcome of this case, which is thanks to the hard work which is done every day by our fire safety inspectors. It should also serve as a warning to property managers that we will take action where people are not taking their responsibilities seriously. There’s no excuse for leaving people’s safety to chance, especially when information is so readily available to those with responsibility for safety in buildings to understand what their duties are and ensure they comply with the law.”
