Fire Risk Assessments

Fire Risk Assessments

Premises are often exposed to a high risk of fire without the knowledge of those whose duty it is to protect occupants, visitors, or any other person who may be exposed to danger (e.g. Firemen, neighbours, etc.).

Why do you need a Fire Risk Assessment?

During the hectic day-to-day running of a business or site, flammables accumulate, fire exits may become blocked or used for storage, fire plans, fire risk assessments and signage are not updated and extinguishers and alarms become inoperable. On construction sites this is particularly serious due to the increased risk of arson and the nature of works carried out.

‘Only 1 in 6 companies who suffer a major fire make a successful re-start to their business’.

M.E.L. (Health & Safety) Consultants Limited will carry out a thorough inspection of your workplace and prepare a Fire Risk Assessment. The Assessment will advise on the control measures and training requirements needed to lower the potential risk of fire.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 has repealed the requirement for a Fire Certificate but requires that every place of work undertakes a fire risk assessment.

M.E.L. are also able to fulfill all of your Company’s requirements with regards to emergency planning; e.g. emergency signage, fire exit signage, fire action notices, fire equipment (including evacuation assembly points) and much more. Our complete safety signs catalogue is available upon request.
