HHSRS Worked Examples

These examples are the opinions of a group of over 20 housing practitioners in the East Midlands. They represent the current state of judgement and practice amongst those officers and are not intended as model answers but are offered for peer review.

Please note: These examples do not form any degree of national standard and have not been accepted as law, therefore regional variations are possible. Compliance with all relevant laws should be sought from the local authority or local fire service before implementing any fire safety standard.
