Fire Risk Assessment – The Company’s MOT

Every time you get into a car, you presume it is legal for the road with tax, insurance and of course a valid MOT (for cars three years and older). The MOT is the certificate that says the car has been checked and is safe to travel on the road. But what about companies/working premises, and their legal responsibility for fire safety?

A Fire risk assessment can be thought of as a company’s MOT. Without a valid fire risk assessment, the company breaks the law, Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The penalty for not having a fire risk assessment can mean a fine for the responsible person in the company, or even a prison sentence.

So what is a fire risk assessment and how can you get one done? Well, at Fire Care and Security we have qualified Risk Assessors that inspect your premises, and produce a comprehensive report highlighting any areas of weakness. The fire risk assessment is designed to protect lives and can also help protect the building too. We will help you make the right decision to protect your business without over burdening you with the commercial aspect. Our Assessors give expert advice and assistance during the evaluation and, more importantly, afterwards too.
