Security & Fire Risk Assessment
Why do I need it?
The law requires that all business premises where more than five people are employed need to have records of fire risk assessments - they must be carried out and regularly reviewed in order to identify what a company needs to do to prevent fire and keep people safe. If you call us in to help with a new fire detection system we will always also carry out a fire risk assessment, to make sure you're covered with exactly the right system you need.
As security experts we can advise you on security risks for your business - we've seen a lot of businesses so sometimes there may be risks we spot that you weren't aware of. That's why we carry out security risk assessments to help you work out the level of cover you need. We are experienced in assessing the security risks in a range of sectors from agricultural to industrial and commercial and public sector, as well as domestic properties of course.
