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?

    Balliol College

    Chris Lewis Fire & Security has maintained Balliol College’s fire protection system since 2005. Our engineers conducted an in-depth site survey to assess Balliol’s fire protection requirements; the new system needed to be considerably larger than the original to meet regulations. The final design included over 1,000 detectors, an increase of threefold.
