Fire SAfety is our business

Our team of independent fire safety experts are available to keep you, your people and business safe from fire providing the best fire safety advice.

As part of this change in the law a recent and relevant fire risk assessment is required.

The truth is what do most people know about fire safety and how do they even begin to start understanding the hundreds of pages of legislation and guidance documents.

✓ COMPREHENSIVE FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT

One of our assessors will visit your building to complete a comprehensive fire risk assessment and evaluation of fire safety including:

  • Building design, age and condition.
  • Evaluation of the persons at risk.
  • Sources of ignition and fuel.
  • Management and prevention processes and policies.
  • Means of escape.
  • Measure to manage or mitigate risk.
  • Fire safety equipment, signage, training and drills.

After the site visit we will provide you with a comprehensive written report. The report comprises a detailed and documented fire risk assessment covering all aspects of fire risk and safety, and helps you to protect your business, employees and customers by providing prioritised recommendations for action to rectify problem areas and strengthen existing fire safety procedures to ensure that you comply with fire safety regulations.

✓ POLICY DEVELOPMENT

We will work with you to develop the best policies to ensure that you provide a safe environment and compliance.

✓ EVACUATION PROCEDURES

Anyone who attended school is familiar with the fire drills. As children, many of us were thrilled at the idea of getting out of class for a bit, and thankfully, most of us never got to experience a real evacuation due to an actual crisis. We went through these drills, primarily so that we were aware of exactly where to exit the building in the event of a fire.

Practice Makes Perfect

A structured evacuation plan that has been implemented and practiced greatly minimises the risk of any injuries or fatalities should fire occur, which is why it’s important to put it into practice, not only at schools, but at any building with several exits and a number of people working, living or simply visiting its premises.

Choosing the Right Plan

You could save lives by having a proper evacuation plan designed for your building. The right plan will ensure that fire evacuation plans are created specifically with your building’s unique characteristics in mind, ensuring that should the need for evacuation arise, everyone will be aware of the correct routes to take to get out of the building. Having a formal evacuation plan in place is not only a practical solution, it is also likely to minimise panic, as clearly allocated exits will be accessible at all times.

Source Fire Risk Management employs a team of professionals that can help you put life-saving plans into place in the event of a fire. To find out more about a tailor-made evacuation plan, visit Source Fire or call Source Fire Risk Management on 0203 478 7347.

✓ Fire risk assessments

Fire risk assessments

We conduct Type 3 non-destructive fire risk assessments which give you a more thorough report. This type of assessment covers all common areas of a building – and individual dwellings. A Type 3 FRA considers all means of escapes (including those within individual dwellings), structures, and compartmentation between flats and any means of fire detection.

If you require Type 4 destructive please contact us to discuss in more detail.

 

✓ Health and Safety reports

Health and Safety reports

If you require a Health and Safety report we can offer these as a stand alone service or combine with your Type 3 Fire risk assessment for no additional charge.
 

 

Are You Fire Safe?

For the most part, in our daily lives, fire safety is not something that crosses our minds. This is largely because in the UK, any premises upon which people are working is required to carry out a fire risk assessment that determines any possible fire hazards that may arise in the short or long-term.

If any hazards are discovered, you are required to act on them, which ultimately assures safety for you and your employees. If that sounds like a lot of administration and paperwork to do, don’t worry; it doesn’t have to be. If you’re a business owner or manager, getting a fire risk assessment completed on your premises needn’t be a painful or time-consuming process.

Using a reputable company that employs qualified assessors can streamline the process and minimise the red tape. Assessors from Source Fire will conduct a thorough assessment with a minimum of fuss, taking into account the design, age and condition of the premises, a comprehensive look at the people at risk, fire escape routes and a number of other practical factors.

Source Fire’s experts operate independently and guarantee a comprehensive fire risk assessment that won’t cost you a fortune and will save you time. As independent contractors, assessors provide objective advice and will ultimately make sure that you can rest easy knowing that your employees, friends, family or anyone else who enters your building are safe.

To find out more about making sure that you’re “Fire Safe”, visit Source Fire or call Source-Fire on 0203 478 7347.
