Did you know that it is now compulsory for companies to conduct a fire risk assessment?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires just about all UK business to conduct a fire risk assessment on their workplace. As an employer you are responsible for ensuring that you comply with the legislation.

If you have a fire certificate you still need to conduct a fire risk assessment as they relate to two different pieces of legislation.

You are legally obliged to carry out a fire risk assessment and update it on a regular basis. This is irrespective of size of company and the market in which you operate. If you or your company employs five or more people this must be demonstrated by a hard copy present on the premises and available for inspection. A fire risk assessment is not the same as a fire certificate. If you have a fire certificate you still need to carry out a risk assessment. Many insurance companies offer policy discounts to any business that has carried out a fire risk assessment.

Unless you’re an expert it can be surprisingly hard to spot potential fire hazards.

Our fire risk assessment services will help you protect your premises and people by giving you full visibility of what the fire risks are and where they lie.

Many businesses and organisations are required by law to install and maintain an appropriate fire alarm system on their premises. We can offer you the cover you need to meet the requirements of current EU guidelines, BS 5839 Standards, your local Fire Officer and that of your insurance company. Whether you need a basic system or a complex analogue addressable system, we can find the best solution for you.
