Fire risk assessment services

Warringtonfire’s global fire engineering teams of engaged experts can support you through your fire risk assessment.

A fire risk assessment is probably the most important tool in your arsenal in ensuring the safety of the people using your building and is mandatory in some form under many countries fire safety legislation. Unfortunately, it is the area where a lot of people assert to know what they are doing, but often don’t have the right qualifications to complete it correctly. In order to make sure you know that your fire risk assessment is robust, it’s best to call in the experts.

Warringtonfire’s fire risk assessment team members hold personal third-party competency certification in the form of membership of the Fire Risk Assessors Certification Scheme (FRACS); a UK accreditation service backed scheme. FRACS acceptance criteria are regarded industry-wide as being challenging and robust, thereby offering the assurance that the members have been rigorously assessed before being accepted.

Warringtonfire’s fire risk assessment team is multidisciplinary in nature and we have expertise in key fire safety disciplines to be able to provide the most comprehensive and insightful fire risk assessments; meeting legislative requirements but also tailored to client requirements for managing risk effectively within their organisation.

A fire risk assessment combines a survey, that helps identify the good and bad elements to your building, and a review of fire safety management, which together allows areas for improvement to be identified. The drivers for improvement can be legislative, life safety, asset protection or operationally continuity rooted, but in all cases the fire risk assessment provided by Warringtonfire will provide a detailed insight in the fire safety provisions in operation and identify where improvement can be made and what the benefits attained will look like. This will allow you to be confident that you have complied with all your legal responsibilities under local legislation and also allows you to move forward with your project by addressing fire safety risks.
