Fire Risk Assessment
Accurately determine how vulnerable your property is to fire emergencies.
The Benefits of having a Fire Risk Assessment
A business with good Fire Safety Management is less likely to suffer from a fire and the subsequent closure, lost production, personal injury claims and lost stock. If your business is badly damaged or destroyed in a fire, could you cope financially to reopen and pay the employees’ wages during the rebuild?
Firstly, having a positive Fire Safety Culture. This can be seen by the employees during the Fire Risk Management from testing the fire alarms and emergency lighting to them seeing the extinguisher engineer in completing the annual maintenance. Staff will see their welfare being considered and protected by the employer.
If your insurance company can see that you as an employer were proactive in terms of Fire Safety Management, they are more likely to pay in full for the insurance claim!
