Fire Safety Logbook

The National Landlords Association (NLA) has launched a new version of their Fire Safety Logbook which has been endorsed by the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA).NLA

The Fire Safety Logbook aims to help landlords in England and Wales keep a record of their fire safety precautions in one document.

The new logbook includes updated regulations for Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarms and contains a number of templates and forms to help landlords:

  • Carry out fire safety risk assessments in their properties
  • Schedule fire equipment safety checks and log any defects
  • Keep a record of fire and false alarms

Richard Price, Director of Operations, said “We have developed this logbook to help landlords identify, reduce and control any potential fire risks in their rental properties.

“We are delighted that The Chief Fire Officers Association, which brings together all fire and rescue services across the country, has endorsed the Logbook, and we urge all landlords to use it to help them keep their properties and their tenants safe.”

Jonathan Herrick, Chair of the CFOA Business Safety Group, said “Landlords have to satisfy requirements from Housing Authorities and this log book, when completed, is great evidence that the right things are being done and that safety is being secured.

“Landlords have a responsibility to keep their tenants safe from the risk of fire and we recommend that landlords in England and Wales take advantage of this fantastic resource”.

The updated Fire Safety Logbook is available from the NLA website as a free download or can be purchased in print form.
