Increase in Fire Risk Assessments

Workload during the busy summers months have certainly continued into the autumn this year with projects being undertaken for existing and new customers to Active Fire Management.

Fire Risk Assessments have continued to be prepared daily by the company’s busy team of fire risk assessors and the company has noticed an increase in fire risk assessments and fire consultancy projects (such as capacity consultancy work) being required by pubs and nightclubs in England, Scotland and Wales. The company has also been providing fire consultancy and assessments for social landlords, GP’s surgeries, restaurants, medical centres, retail outlets, offices, schools and even at a Police fire arms range.

Training courses, in the subjects of both fire and first aid have continued to be held around the country with an increase seen in the company’s Level 2 Fire Safety Course which was introduced just this year. For information about the course please click here.

Also attending courses by Active Fire Management this month include a  care provider that delivers high quality support services to adults with learning disabilities and associated challenging behaviour such as autism, a leading Approved Inspector providing high quality, client focussed Building Control services as an alternative to Local Authority Building Control and a leading provider of care, health and housing services for the elderly.

Fire Marshal Training - Mission Foods

As well as customers utilising the services of Active Fire Management to review their fire risk assessments, this month will also be busy for the company’s Training Instructors who are gearing up to travel throughout the UK to deliver fire safety training courses.

It seems that the most popular course this month is Fire Marshal Training which is scheduled to be held for previous course attendees as well as new customers, for example, Active Fire Management are delighted to be introducing Mission Foods - Europe’s leading flat bread company - as a new customer this month who are scheduled to receive training in their premises in Coventry later this month.

Fire Risk Assessment Reviews Nationwide

Active Fire Management is having a busy month of July where considerable time and resources are being put into place to carry out annual fire risk assessment reviews for the second, third and forth year running for some customers. Qualified fire risk assessors are currently reviewing properties nationwide in accordance with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order.

Our nationwide customers recognise that fire risk assessments are a continuous process and must be monitored and audited.  New and existing control measures should be maintained to make sure they are still working effectively.  Furthermore, if changes are introduced into your workplace, your original fire risk assessment may not address any new hazards or risk arising from them.  For this reason it’s important that fire risk assessments are reviewed and revised regularly.

The assessments, which began the planning stage in June 2012, commenced in early July and will cover the North, South, East and West of the country for a variety of customers from care homes to office blocks.
