Fire Safety is an important aspect of health and safety management for all businesses and should not be neglected or taken for granted.
Increasingly, Fire Officers are visiting businesses, and they want to see your Fire Safety Risk Assessments, and they want to know who the responsible person is. Failure to prove compliance could lead to an improvement notice being served on your business.
Our Fire Safety Consultants help you to ensure that you have designated a responsible person, make sure your fire safety risk assessment is up to date, and ensure that your fire safety policies and procedures are compliant. We work with you to create a current fire safety plan, unique to your business, and can also provide you with fire safety training. In doing so, you will have the peace of mind that your procedures are up to date and compliant and that the risks to your business are minimised.
It may sound like a simple task, but we will also make sure that they have the appropriate fire safety signs and posters in all the right places so that nobody will be in any doubt as to what their responsibilities are and what they must do in the event of a fire.
If you need help to understand your fire safety responsibilities or if you need a competent person to carry out your fire safety risk assessment, please call one of our fire safety consultants on 01509 550023 – we will be happy to help you.
Unless otherwise instructed, we usually work to the PAS79: 2020 standard
