Fire Risk Assessments From Mainpoint Fire and Security
Did you know that it is now compulsory for companies to conduct a fire risk assessment?
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires just about all UK business to conduct a fire risk assessment on their workplace. As an employer you are responsible for ensuring that you comply with the legislation.
If you have a fire certificate you still need to conduct a fire risk assessment as they relate to two different pieces of legislation.
You are legally obliged to carry out a fire risk assessment and update it on a regular basis. This is irrespective of size of company and the market in which you operate. If you or your company employs five or more people this must be demonstrated by a hard copy present on the premises and available for inspection.
A fire risk assessment is not the same as a fire certificate.
If you have a fire certificate you still need to carry out a risk assessment. Many insurance companies offer policy discounts to any business that has carried out a fire risk assessment.
Unless you’re an expert it can be surprisingly hard to spot potential fire hazards.
Our fire risk assessment services will help you protect your premises and people by giving you full visibility of what the fire risks are and where they lie.

It’s a service which is greatly valued- as this kind testimonial which we receievd last month from one such course which we ran:
“Once again we enjoyed having Mainpoint carry out our fire safety training, as we do year upon year. Whilst the content is thorough and ever relevant, it is always put over with an element of fun, making it easier to absorb!”
“I have always, and will continue to, highly recommend their training services.”
