A fire risk assessment can protect your building inside and out

Safety is the most important aspect of work. Looking after those who work in your building and taking responsibility for their safety is not something that should be taken lightly. Fire can strike at any time and can often spread quickly and without warning. Safety checklists and fire doors aren’t always enough when fire strikes and ensuring you have an up to date, secure fire system will prevent avoidable accidents. Getting a professional fire risk assessment for your building is the best way to cover all possible outcomes and is especially valuable in larger and more complex buildings.

New buildings are especially susceptible to fire hazards as many are designed to be quirky, minimalist and aesthetically pleasing. You need to ensure you have a complete fire system with professional and easy to understand safety and evacuation plans. Ensuring you have simple but strong evacuation plans will make things easier for you, especially when it comes to educating your workforce on where to go and what to do should fire strike.

Having the correct fire legislation is another important aspect to consider when looking into your building’s fire safety. A fire risk assessment will not only ensure you have met the initial requirements for correct fire safety in the eyes of the law but can also be used to help with advice on other issues too. Smoke venting, fire alarm placement and many other issues can be solved with a fire risk assessment and could save you from prosecution for poor safety management.

Assessing your fire risks is not something to be taken lightly and should be carried out by the professionals, who understand exactly what elements of a building pose a fire risk and can authenticate the safety measures you have in place. When looking for a company that provides a complete and thorough fire risk assessment, you’ll want to know that not only will you receive a complete visual fire safety check but that you can also opt-in to a more complete fire safety package.

Don’t leave it to chance, book a fire risk assessment today and secure your building’s future.
