Profesisonal Fire Risk Assessment is Key to Minimising Fire Hazards

Various Fire and Rescue Authorities in the country have responded to about 192,600 fires from 2012 to 2013, a figure that would certainly have been higher were it not for the heavy rains at the time. Even more troubling is the fact that more than a third of fires in the U.K. occurred in dwellings where no smoke or fire alarms were installed. Such a lapse in fire safety measures is something a company like Help and Safety at Work Ltd wishes to avert and eliminate, specifically by means of a thorough fire risk assessment of commercial and residential properties.
At any rate, fire safety should be everyone’s responsibility. The Fire Safety Order states that everyone who owns or occupies a non-domestic property should, among other things, conduct their own inspections for potential fire hazards, inform their colleagues of any such hazards identified within the premises, and participate in emergency planning.
