Did you know?
The Fire Risk assessment should be reviewed by a competent person periodically, or immediately if there is a reason to suspect that it is no longer valid, (for example, if there have been any significant changes to internal layout or staffing), or if a fire occurs.
The impact of a fire can be so severe that 70% of businesses suffering a major fire either never re-open, or close within 3 years of the fire. By taking a few simple steps to reduce fire risks employers can prevent fires breaking out. However, a Fire Risk Assessment in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire or Scotland will only satisfy your legal duties if it is site specific and portrays an accurate and honest account of the fire safety arrangements in place in the premises.
Realm Fire and Security has experienced personnel who can assist with planning and can carry out thorough and comprehensive fire risk assessments. This is aimed at establishing how fires can be prevented and will determine what steps can be taken to reduce the risk of fire across a facility including offices.
