Is your fire risk assessment fit for purpose?

Is your fire risk assessment fit for purpose?

When people undertake fire risk assesments there is a legal requirement to ensure that the person doing the assessment is competent, this equally applies to in-house staff and external consultants. Ensuring appointed fire risk assessor are competent is often difficult as decisions are often being made against advertisements and associated costs.

Many companies advertising their fire risk assessment services claim  to hold acrediation with logos supporting their web pages, how often are these logo's checked to ensure what is being advertised is actually accrediation for conducting life safety fire risk assessments, as opposed to servicing firefighting equipment and the like. 

There are approved registers of fire risk assessors which can easily be checked on the web, to ensure that fire risk assessors have appropriate accreditation.

Once your fire risk assessment is completed we advise that you send a copy to your insurance company asking them to comment on suitability. Around 80% of businesses that have  a fire never recover.
