Businesses, tower blocks and flats must have a Fire Risk Assessment by law, but do you know what one is or how to get one?
A fire risk assessment is designed to minimise the probability of the event of a fire by identifying the potential hazards and fire risks within a building.
Through our partnership with Local Authority Building Control (LABC), we offer a qualified, competent and publicly accountable service.
LABC has more than 100 qualified fire risk assessors across England and Wales, and is the largest Fire Risk Assessors Certification Scheme (FRACS) accredited fire risk assessment team in the UK.
FRACS is the only third party UKAS Accredited certification scheme in the country that proves an individual fire risk assessors technical competence.
The team has extensive experience of fire safety management in a whole range of building types, including sheltered housing accommodation, office blocks, leisure centres, depots, libraries and high rise residential projects.
They understand building construction and fire strategy from design to construction; and can identify where the original fire protection has been breached by subsequent changes or poor maintenance; they also understand the limitations of existing buildings of different ages and how to achieve and maintain a reasonable and adequate level of safety in use.
The Fire Risk Assessment will judge the property against the relevant current BS Standards.
