Fire Safety

Fire safety from SGS – minimise the risk of fire while complying with legislation.

Since 1 October 2006, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, also known as the RRO, has required all non-domestic premises employing five or more people to have a written fire risk assessment, carried about by a responsible person. We can carry out a fire risk assessment for you, identifying any fire hazards and the actions needed to eliminate, reduce or control their risk.

Why Choose Fire Safety From SGS?

More than 70 percent of businesses affected by fire never reopen. A fire risk assessment is the first step in reducing the risk that fire will harm your business.

Our assessments cover:

  • Fire hazards
  • People at risk from fire
  • Fire prevention
  • Flammable liquids and gases (storage and handling)
  • Good housekeeping
  • Checking the means of escape
  • Signs and notices
  • Fire detection systems
  • Smoke control
  • Escape lighting
  • Emergency procedures
  • Training, testing and maintenance
  • Facilities for fire fighting by the rescue service

Our highly qualified and experienced fire risk assessors will work with you to understand your business practices, so you can minimise the risk of fire without disrupting your regular activities.

Once an initial fire risk assessment is made and the necessary actions have been implemented, it should be reviewed periodically and whenever significant changes have occurred.
