London Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) are an essential service provided by Metro-PAT 24/7 Limited. It helps identify potential risks in buildings and gives advice on how to reduce them.
Why should I get a Fire Risk Assessment?
If you own a business or own a residential property that is let out to tenants, it is essential that you get a fire risk assessment. These assessments help identify potential hazards in your home or workplace, such as flammable materials, electrical wiring, appliances and heating systems. You can find out if there are any issues with your building that could cause a fire, which could be dangerous for your employees or tenants.
What does it involve?
An FRA is carried out by trained assessors who will visit the property and conduct a detailed inspection. They will check the building structure, electrical wiring, heating systems, ventilation, and other areas of concern. If there are any issues with these areas, they will advise the owner on what needs to be done in the event of a fire.
A fire risk assessor will:
Identify fire hazards.
Identify people at risk.
Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.
Record their findings and provide documentation
Make recommendations to reduce the risk
Who will carry out the assessment?
A London Fire Risk Assessment should be carried out by a certified fire safety engineer. These engineers are employed by Metro-PAT 24/7 Limited and are specially trained to carry out fire safety inspections.
What happens next?
After our visit, you will be contacted by one of our fire safety advisors, who will discuss your report with you. We will provide you with a written summary of the findings and advise what we think needs to be done to improve the building's fire safety.
