Fire Risk Assessments
New fire laws place an increasing emphasis on your legal duty to carry out formal fire risk assessments. The Fire Brigade will soon have the power to revoke fire safety certificates, and in the event of a serious fire incident, prosecution proceedings could be brought against those found to have carried out an insufficient fire risk assessment.
A consultant will carry out a comprehensive inspection that will assess a broad range of risk factors including sources of ignition, means of escape, warning systems, risk to personnel and many more.
A full and comprehensive report will be produced that will describe the current situation and include a draft remedial action plan of how existing arrangements can be improved to bring them in line with current best practice.
Following the receipt of the inspection report and adoption of the remedial action plan, a consultant can, if required, support its systematic implementation as well as verifying by audit that objectives have been met.
