Businesses with five or more employees are required to carry out a fire risk assessment by law. As highly qualified and experienced independent assessors we can support your in-house team or conduct assessments on your behalf – acting as your ‘responsible person’.
Most fires are preventable and with our in-depth knowledge of fire safety we can help you identify the risks bespoke to your business, and put steps in place to mitigate them, including providing any fire protection and life safety equipment needed. Our fully-compliant fire risk assessment includes:
Identifying the hazards – a fire hazard is any form of ignition that could result in a fire, including sources of fuel and oxygen.
Evaluating, removing or reducing risks – we recommend the actions you need to take to remove fire hazards where possible, alongside protection measures to minimise the remaining risks. For example, the correct way to manage flammable or explosive materials used and stored on site.
Identifying people at risk – we highlight anyone who could be at risk from fire hazards connected to your business, including your people, other building users, and members of the public – including those who may be especially at risk.
Recording, planning and training – your fire risk assessment includes full details of our findings and recommendations for your records, including the actions you need to take to remove and reduce fire risks. To meet compliance, we can also help you develop an emergency plan and provide training for your people.
Reviewing your assessment and emergency plan – to ensure you stay compliant, we can regularly review your fire risk assessment and emergency plan and keep it up-to-date.
Service, maintenance and upgrades
Having a service and maintenance agreement in place is essential for ensuring your fire protection and life safety systems work when you need them most – in an emergency. In addition, it is also an important part of maintaining compliance with fire regulations and legislation.
We offer a flexible range of planned preventative maintenance packages delivered by our specialist engineers – including regular inspections, testing, and servicing and maintenance to keep your equipment in good condition and spot potential issues before they become faults. With us, servicing and maintenance is scheduled and carried out on time, at the right time, helping to protect your business from costly reactive maintenance work and unexpected equipment failures.
Our services are delivered in line with fire regulations and legislation and can also be tailored to suit your specific needs. From a rolling programme of visits, to dedicated engineers supporting your team onsite, full-time or part-time. We also provide a 24/7 call-out engineering service for faults and reactive maintenance, 365 days a year.
With our extensive experience, we can take you beyond conventional service and maintenance and carry out specialist upgrades and enhancements to extend the life of your systems, maximise your return on investment, and enhance the safety and wellbeing of your people and your business.
