Fire Risk Assessment
A fire risk assessment is a methodical and thorough fire safety assessment of your premises and the activities that you carry out. Based on the results of the risk assessment, we will be able to advise you about the degree of protection that your existing fire safety strategy, procedures and equipment provides to your premises, staff and customers.

FIRE SAFETY ASSESSMENTS and comprehensive advice
We offer five step fire risk assessments to identify and reduce fire hazards.
This includes identifying fire hazards and people at risk, evaluating and protecting from risk, recording and planning, informing and training staff, and annual reviews.
Our assessments also include inspecting fire doors and shutters, escape lighting, firefighting equipment, warning systems, and safety signs.
Fire Assessment Reports
Our engineers provide detailed risk assessment reports, complete with colour photographic-evidence documentation and a full advisory service. This includes advice on any fire safety remedial works required and a timeframe for carrying these out.
Upon completion, your risk assessment will need to be reviewed and renewed annually, to ensure that your establishment adheres to legal and legislative fire-safety regulations.
