Business Fire Safety Risk Assessments

In addition to our installation and maintenance services, Fire Guard Services also provide a full fire risk assessment. These are carried by our professional in-house risk assessors throughout Herts, Beds and Bucks.

A fire risk assessment is a methodical and thorough assessment of your premises and the activities that you carry out. Based on the results of the risk assessment, we will be able to conclude how likely a fire is to start and cause harm to the staff or public.

Business Fire Safety Training

In Britain, fires in the workplace cost hundreds of millions of pounds every year. According to statistics, 80% of businesses never recover after a serious fire. This is why fire safety staff training is vital, as knowing how to deal with a fire can mean the difference between saving your business and losing it or the loss of someone’s life.

The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997, as amended, states that places of work with five or more employees must have a written risk assessment, highlighting any precautionary measures taken against against fire, and any preventative action required.

PAT Testing for Businesses

PAT testing is the examination of electrical equipment and devices to ensure they are safe to use. A lot of the time, safety defects are visual and can be spotted easily. However, sometimes this is not the case and faults can only be found by testing the equipment.

If testing is not carried out, the defect could then cause danger to the individual using the equipment, or even the whole building should it start a fire.

Fire Safety Testing

Weekly fire alarm testing should be part of your business routine. It is a simple yet essential part of your fire safety plan and will help you and your colleagues stay safe at your workplace.

Whether you run a large or small business, your time and energy will be devoted to running your company and it is understandable that fire safety may not be high on your list of things to do.
