What we offer: A total Fire Risk Assessment of the workplace with a written report. The fee will depend on the size and layout of the building and time taken. Unlike other Fire Risk Assessors, we are trained and qualified to take cognisance of mission continuity, looking at the performance of the building and likely fire spread given the most likely scenario in a fire situation. We can then give advice on safeguarding the interests of your Company as well as life safety. We recognise that most employers don’t have the time or necessary skills to carry out these obligations. We offer our services and expertise as Fire Risk Consultants & Trainers using highly qualified and experienced staff to carry out Fire Risk Assessments and Staff Training.
