Fire risk assessors near East Sussex – book domestic & commercial fire risk checks
Whether you need a fire safety check at an HMO or emergency light testing at an office block, we can help. We work closely with property agents, landlords and commercial organisations, ensuring you fulfil your responsibilities for reducing fire risks at your property.
What is a fire hazard check?
Fire hazards checks are completed by trained assessors, inspecting various aspects of your building and fire equipment. They'll assess for potential fire hazards and areas of concern while making sure you have the right measures in place to reduce the risks of smoke and fire, including alarms, escape route lighting, fire extinguishers and smoke seals. Each assessment takes into account the building setup, occupancy, fire history and property use.
When are fire risk surveys needed?
British Standards recommend regular fire risk assessments, so many businesses and landlords schedule new checks annually, alongside other services such as EICRs and boiler maintenance. If you have more than five occupants in your building, you must keep a copy of the report findings, so please maintain a record of risk assessments conducted and any improvements made.
Who should manage fire risks?
In both domestic buildings (e.g. flats or HMOs with communal spaces) and commercial properties, there should be a named person who's responsible for fire safety requirements. Failure to comply with all the relevant guidelines could put occupants, staff or visitors in harm's way. In some instances, this can lead to businesses receiving large fines or prosecution if an accident occurs. If you need a new fire risk survey at your building, please get in touch with our team today.
