A fire risk assessment is essential in keeping your premises safe for everyone.

For each fire risk assessment we will inspect, evaluate and recommend safeguards necessary to reduce risk and improve fire safety arrangements within the premises.

Subsequent reporting procedure will prioritise and identify significant findings in a fire risk assessment, good practice and inform of any non-compliance of fire safety legislation.
