Workplace Fire Safety


Fire can be devastating to any business, in a number of ways.  It can destroy stock, permanently damage buildings and it can cost lives.  Fire Safety should be a top priority for all business owners and managers in all industries across the UK.  One particular legal requirement for all businesses is to complete a fire risk assessment, on an annual basis, to identify and manage workplace fire risks.  Keeping a documented record of a fire risk assessment is also a key requirement.

Encompass Safety Solutions offers a range of fire safety services, including carrying out comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments, which can help you:

  • Identify fire hazards
  • Identify people at risk
  • Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks
  • Evaluate fire safety competence
  • Comply with the law

Within the assessment we will evaluate:

  • Emergency routes and exits
  • Fire detection and warning systems
  • Testing and inspection records
  • Firefighting equipment
  • Presence and storage of any hazardous materials
  • Emergency fire evacuation plan and all signage
  • Any special requirements to accommodate people with additional needs, for example the elderly, young children and people with disabilities
