Fire Risk Assessments

A fire risk assessment helps you identify all the fire hazards and risks in your premises. You will then be able to decide whether the risks identified are acceptable or whether you need to take steps to reduce or control them.

 

People are at the heart of everything we do, so ensuring that everyone within the building is safe during an unforeseen circumstance is vital to us, we want to make sure that everyone leaves the building with limited anxiety and worry.

 

Our engineers are fully trained to complete this service and are aware of the regulations which they must abide to complete the job effectively.

Laws and Regulations

You must abide by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which consists of carrying out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.

There is no fixed time for reviewing your Fire Risk Assessment, but it is certainly necessary whenever there are any significant changes which could affect the fire risk.
