Last year there were over 15,500 non-residential fires in the UK, resulting in damage to property, injuries and in some cases, fatalities. Whatever size organisation you run, fire safety is important, you are legally obliged to ensure your premises are a safe place for your employees to work, which means taking action to minimise the risk of fire. In fact, the Health and Safety Executive has stated that fire risk assessments are mandatory for all business premises.
Although the responsibility is yours to bear, at Bison Assist we can help ease the burden by taking away any concerns you may have over whether you are compliant with current fire safety legislation. We provide comprehensive fire risk assessments for organisations of all sizes, so you can take the steps you need to ensure the safety of your employees.
Ticking the legal boxes
We make sure we’re always up to date with current fire safety legislation, so you don’t have to worry about keeping up with any changes. Currently there are 4 pieces of legislation that you are required to meet: the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996, the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Approved Code of Practice – Safety signs and signals (L64 – Third edition 2015).
When we carry out a fire risk assessment at your premises, we’ll make sure you are compliant with each of the legal requirements stipulated in the above legislation. If you aren’t fully compliant, we’ll clearly highlight this in our report alongside recommendations to bring your organisation in line with current regulations.
When carrying out your fire risk assessment, our highly trained, professional assessors will make sure that there is minimal disruption to your working day. While we’re addressing the fire safety at your organisation, you can focus on doing what you do best.
Make sure your premises don’t fall victim to an accidental fire. Protect the safety of your employees and put fire safety first. Book your fire risk assessment with Bison Assist today. We’ll come out to your premises as soon as possible at a time that works for your schedule.
