Here at Hendeca we are entirely committed to keeping people and premises safe, whether through prevention, protection or helping to prepare people with a suitable response. We do this by evaluating premises to reduce risk and prevent fire, make recommendations to protect people and buildings and/or prepare staff how to respond to an emergency.
Our fire risk assessors have all had careers in business fire safety regulation and managing fire service incidents, and all have seen how fires affect people and businesses. They have also seen how good building design and well managed premises can reduce fire risk, by preventing fires or limiting the spread. Therefore, they are so committed to sharing their knowledge and experience of business fire safety with you.
Our assessors are all qualified to undertake fire risk assessments using the PAS 79 Code of Practice and they also have experience of working with Building Control and regulatory bodies.
If you are an employer, owner or manager of a business and you have a premises, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 means that you need to undertake a fire risk assessment. Designed to keep your employees, visitors, and any contractors safer from fire, it can also make your premises more resilient by integrating fire safety across your business operations.
The purpose of a fire risk assessment is to identify and reduce fire hazards. We assess your premises to identify people at risk, evaluate the situation and surroundings to remove or reduce the risks. We record our observations and include recommendations for you to work with to make your business safer from fire.
We consider three main strategies to reduce and manage fire risk;
Our professional approach to your assessment means we use existing Codes of Practice, British Standards, and technical guidance to deliver a risk proportionate set of recommendations.
Working with you, we can enhance the life safety and fire resilience of your premises, strengthen its sustainability, and deliver improved and inclusive life safety measures. All of which can add value to your business.
PAS 79-1 2020 Life safety fire risk assessments
Published by the British Standards Institution this Code of Practice sets out a framework for the assessment of fire risk which aims to protect the occupants of non-domestic premises; e.g. employees, contractors, visitors and members of the public. It provides the benchmark for a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment and is likely to be satisfactory to enforcing authorities.
We can provide you with a pragmatic, holistic and risk-proportionate assessment of your premises.
As part of the assessment, we will;
We can also review your current fire risk assessment.
Fire risk assessments are designed to be a living document and as such they cannot remain valid for an unlimited length of time. They should be reviewed periodically. We also offer an independent and impartial review service, at a reduced cost, which will depend upon the size and complexity of the premises.
We recommend that only two periodic reviews are completed before a new and complete fire risk assessment is carried out.
