Protecting students & staff Since 1993
It’s a legal requirement to make sure a ‘suitably competent’ person completes a Fire Risk Assessment inside a school, college, or university, and it is your duty, as the responsible person, to identify fire risk hazards and to take appropriate action.
If there is a fire and you have not met your legal duties to keep your staff, students, and visitors safe, you could be fined or even spend time in prison, so why not trust the experts and let us take that weight off your shoulders?
