Future-Proof Your Property From Fire
No Unnecessary Upselling
Whether you need a professional fire risk assessment for your shop or are looking to book fire safety training for your retail staff, the experts at FireCare can help. At FireCare, we have a vast amount of experience within the retail industry, helping shops across the South Coast with their fire precaution needs. Our professional team are here to suggest practical, pragmatic steps to help you improve your compliance and better protect your people, premises and property.
Retail stores selling items such as clothing are often considered to be particularly at risk of fire. With high footfall, larges places of assembly and stockrooms full of potentially flammable stock, a fire could have devastating effects, causing extensive property damage and even loss of life. Protecting your staff and customers can seem overwhelming, which is why at FireCare, we specialise in all things fire safety for your retail premises across London, Surrey and the South Coast, including fire training, fitting fire extinguishers and emergency lighting.

Fire Safety Risk Assessments for Retail - What Are Your Legal Obligations?
Written fire risk assessments are a legal obligation for all companies who employ five or more persons, and must be undertaken by a competent person each year to ensure that your retail fire procedures meet the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
To ensure that such a vital task is completed correctly, it is always worthwhile to contract fire professionals such as the team at FireCare to complete your fire risk assessment for you.
Not only is an experienced fire risk assessor likely to identify potential risks that an untrained eye may overlook, but a professional will be able to recommend pragmatic yet effective ways to minimise your risk without incurring significant additional costs.
Fire risk assessments for offices and shops completed by FireCare will examine the following:
- Your current fire prevention measures
- How well you could communicate to those on-site in the event of a fire
- Your escape routes and fire evacuation measures. Are there clear escape paths? Do you complete regular fire drills? Do you have any vulnerable staff with special escape requirements?
- How well you could confine and suppress a fire
- The level of awareness and training among your staff in terms of what to do if a fire occurs
Having completed this assessment, FireCare would then provide further information and make informed recommendations based on our experience of fire safety audits in retail stores to ensure you stay safe, legal, and compliant.
