Dear Alan,

Thank you for your request for information.

As you may know, the LFB is a regulator of fire safety but we are not required to assess every fire risk assessment. If a risk assessment was found to be inadequate, then we may find it necessary to take some kind of enforcement action. So whilst I am unable to tell you how many risk assessments were found, on inspection, to be inadequate, I can tell that between 1/1/2012 and 31/12/2016 we took some remedial steps (either by way of a Notice of Deficiencies, Enforcement Notice or Prohibition Notice) on 13,132 occasions; and of these 580 were in hotels, boarding houses or similar accommodation.

I hope you find this useful. If you have any further questions do let me know.

Your request has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. If you are dissatisfied by this response you can request an internal review by writing to the Head of Information Management and Performance at the address below (or email [email address]).

Further information about your information rights (including how to raise a concern or make a compliant) is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office on their website at www.ico.org.uk or by writing to them at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF
