Fire Risk Assessment

Every year people are seriously injured or die as a result of fire in the workplace. Besides loss of life , fire costs Uk businesses millions of pounds each year from property damage, loss of business, compensation claims and insurance premiums.

Fire Risk Assessments Plymouth

In many cases, fires can be avoided by taking adequate fire precautions. If a fire does not break out by using effective preventative controls and procedures the effects can of course be minimised. In England, Wales and Scotland, new rules were introduced in October 2006, replacing most existing fire safety legislation. There is no longer a requirement for fire certificates but the emphasis is on preventing and reducing the risk of fires. These rules will apply to Northern Ireland in October 2008.

At AWL Group of Plymouth we offer a wide range of fire detection and alarm systems, based on the information from a fire risk assessment. A qualified surveyor will carry out a rigorous fire risk assessment before advising on the type of system required.

Anyone who has some control over premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire. The regulations apply to all non-domestic premises.
