and risk assessment
Nothing is more important than the measures you take to guard against threats of fire and theft. As a business owner you are legally responsible for fire safety in your organisation, and all businesses with more than four employees must keep a written risk assessment.
Understand the risks
The risks to your business are as unique as your organisation. The layout and design of your buildings, the number of staff you have, their working patterns and the products and machinery you house, all contribute to the level of fire and security risk you are holding.
Wessex Group’s extensive experience in providing fire and security systems for small to large, and often multi-site, businesses means we are perfectly placed to be able to assess your needs. Our experts have designed the fire prevention systems and protocols for businesses as diverse as the National Trust, Marks and Spencer and the national brewing chain Hall & Woodhouse. We have also delivered security systems for clients such as Longleat Safari Park, Canford School and Poole NHS Hospital.
Anyone who owns a non-domestic building, is a landlord, employer or occupier, or indeed has any control of a business premises, is known as the responsible person, and could be held accountable in the event of a tragedy.
If your business is complex, or you want the comfort of experienced guidance, our professional fire risk assessors offer a wide range of expert services. We understand that any assessment has to be as discrete as possible and yet must give you the confidence that no stone has been left unturned in the careful consideration of the fire and security risks posed to your business. We offer single to multi-site assessments, fire risk assessment renewals and even fire consultancy for medium to high-risk premises.
Standard to premium options
From standard, compliance-focused risk assessments to premium assessments, covering more complex, multi-occupancy premises – Wessex offer them all.
We can provide you renewal or a refresh of your fire risk assessment documentation, following changes to your premises, small fires or near misses, or can arrange a regular, annual assessment.
Our assessors are all experts in fire safety and, as a minimum, are graduates of the Institution of Fire Engineers.
