Having a fire risk assessment is a legal requirement for every business premise under The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005. Fire risk assessments should be regularly reviewed and updated by all duty holders (persons responsible for buildings).
Our team of fire risk assessors are all NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) trained and are members of IFE (The Institute of Fire Engineers) register of approved fire risk assessors.
Our approved fire risk assessors operate throughout the UK and will inspect your premises and provide you with a detailed fire risk assessment report. This will detail all findings and will identify any necessary measures which may be required to improve the fire safety of your premises and bring it in line with all current regulations.
