Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessment

Competent in undertaking all types of fire risk assessments, including fire door surveys and all aspects of testing and inspection.
Priority 1 offer a complete approach to fire risk assessment, covering all aspects of asset management. This approach ensures your organisation is fully compliant with the current fire safety legislation and meets the relevant industry standards and best practice recommendations.

A fire at your premises could lead to a catastrophic event, including loss of property, injury to employees and visitors, and in extreme cases the loss of lives. If you have responsibility for the premises, you are legally required to ensure that the fire risks at the property have been properly assessed and that such levels of risk are understood.
Fire risk assessments should be completed by a qualified and experienced assessor. Priority 1 will visit the premises and identify any hazards, evaluate and explain the level of risk, and produce an action plan of the requirements and recommendations. Applying timescales to such plans help you prioritise any recommended works to ultimately improve the overall risk rating and fire safety measures at your premises.
