We Serve the South of England, from Bristol, to Southampton, to Essex
At FSS South, we take a methodical approach to fire risk assessments, examining each element of your business to ensure that it has adequate fire protection in place to protect you and your team, and to keep you compliant with fire safety legislation.
Our pragmatic, approachable assessors will inspect the prevention and suppression methods already in place, and compare these with the needs of your business.
We'll then produce a Fire Action Plan to help you bridge the gap between what you have now, and what you need, and will support you in implementing this.

What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
Fire risk assessments are tailored documents for your company and its status in relation to fire safety which should be recorded for inspection by Fire Officers and your insurance company. They are also a useful tool for preventative and improvement measures.
The fire risk assessment process incorporates a methodical approach to analysing your working practices in relation to to fire safety. The main areas to examine within a business are:
Fire Prevention – Housekeeping, Storage, Smoking, Heating and Electrical apparatus, Flammable and Combustible substances
Communication – Detectors, Alarms, Signs, Emergency lighting
Escape – Escape routes, Escape plans, Drills, Vulnerable occupants
Confinement – Fire Doors, Fire stopping devices, Smoke dampers
Fire Suppression – Portable and fixed firefighting equipment and training
Training, Drills, Testing, Maintenance – Current status and required improvements
These main fire safety categories are very much interlinked and questions should be asked about the satisfactory standard of what is in place (in regard to endangerment of the building and human life) and how any particular system might be improved.
Training of employees in fire safety awareness and appointing suitable fire wardens will usually be recommended as additional fire safety measures (see our fire safety awareness courses).
