Fire Safety Services

  • Exactly what you need to do protect your staff, your building and your assets from the risk of fire.
  • How to prepare your staff on what needs to be done to prevent a fire, and how to react in the unfortunate event of a fire.
  • How to ensure that you are always compliant with relevant legislation.

 

Fire Risk Assessments

  • Current legislation requires that any workplace with five or more employees, or the common areas in residential flats, must have a fire risk assessment carried out and for it to be reviewed regularly. Failure to do so could result in your premises being served with enforcement or prohibition notices by the Fire Service, often resulting in loss or disruption to your business.
  • As Fire Service professionals, our assessors have already gained a sound knowledge of fire safety legislation, as well as operational experience on how fires start and behave.

Fire Strategy Planning

  • Fire Strategy Planning forms an integral part of every company's fire safety activities not only in its duty of care to employees and the public, but also as part of its legal obligation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

 

Dry and Wet Risers

  • The dry riser installed in your building is a fixed firefighting system to be used by the fire service in the event of a fire. Dry risers have outlets where fire hoses can be attached on each level of the building. They are found in buildings that are between 18 and 60 metres in height.
  • A wet riser is a system similar to dry risers, however, they are kept permanently charged with water.
  • Dry and wet rising mains are intended for use by the Fire Brigade or other trained personnel and provide a readily available means of delivering considerable quantities of water to extinguish or to prevent the spread of fire.

 

Health & Safety Adults:

  • Companies are legally responsible for ensuring health and safety risks are minimised. Our assessors will visit at a time convenient to you to conduct an Audit, and will provide a detailed (user-friendly) report documenting any areas requiring action to ensure you are compliant with the legislation.
  • So don't wait until you get an unannounced visit from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Penalties for each health and safety violation can be as high as £20,000 per violation. The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 is a landmark in law.
  • HSE will expect your company to provide evidence of policies in place for the well-being of all of your staff and of those visiting your premises. In addition, you will need to show training records for responsible staff, accident reporting processes and records demonstrating control measures.
