We undertake fire risk assessment and fire safety consultations throughout the South East, London & Home Counties
A fire risk assessment involves a physical inspection of the premises both internal and external to determine the adequacy of the existing fire precautions and the need for any additional measures. Of equal importance to the physical inspection is important factor regarding scrutiny of fire safety management in the organisation and consideration of the human factors – nature of operations, competency and how people will respond to an emergency and whether they will take appropriate action.
There are practical limits to the extent of the inspection and evaluation of fire prevention and precautions.
In undertaking a fire risk assessment, we do not carry out detailed fire engineering evaluation or testing of fire protection systems, emergency escape lighting, or any other passive or active fire safety provisions incorporated in the premises.
However, we do inspect such systems visually including all supporting commissioning documentation. Where appropriate, we would identify the need for any further fire engineering evaluation, which could be able to carry out if required.
The inspection of the construction of the building would extend to readily accessible areas of the building. We do not normally undertake destructive or intrusive exposure unless a compartmentation survey is required. We inspect above false ceilings, in voids or other isolated spaces where possible, normally on a sampling basis only, unless evidence requires a more intensive investigation due to observed shortfalls.
