Fire Risk Assesments

We understand that fire risk assessments aren’t just about identifying possible fire hazards. They’re a legal requirement for anyone who owns a business or commercial premises. That’s why, at Key Asbestos, we take the burden off your hands by providing full, and thorough, fire risk assessments, ensuring that your building is fire-safe and up to scratch on the legal front!

Why does my commercial premises need a fire risk assessment?

In short: it’s the law. If you run a business, or are the owner of a commercial premises or building with public access, it’s your responsibility to arrange for regular fire risk assessments. This is for the protection of you, your building, and anyone else inside. All too often, potential risks can be unintentionally overlooked by someone who sees them every day. A fresh, unfamiliar eye is likely to spot things that had been previously ignored, or not even identified as a risk. That’s why you should consider the diligent and thorough team of professionals at Key Asbestos for your fire risk assessment needs.

What happens during a fire risk assessment?

Our trained assessors will arrive at your premises and run through four routine stages. These stages will establish whether any further action is required to bring you up to speed with fire safety regulations.

Stage 1 – The fire risk assessor will identify potential areas of risk, and the likely speed at which a fire could spread and grow.
Stage 2 – The number of persons likely to be in the premises at any one time will be taken into consideration.
Stage 3 – The assessor will review any existing fire safety procedures.
Stage 4 – Fire escape routes will be identified and inspected.  

Following the assessment, you may be advised to make some minor changes to your premises. These changes are usually very small, but effective, and rarely require any large overhaul or great expense. Our trained fire risk assessment team will document all their findings and recommendations, before providing you with their notes and a certification of the fire assessment for your files.
