Fire Risk Assessments and Fire Safety Training

Somerset Fire Safety don’t carry out any installation or upgrade works, so we have nothing to gain from completing any fire risk assessment, consultancy service or training course other than helping you comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order and other relevant guidance.

We regularly see premises that are over specified with extinguishers and other equipment resulting in unnecessary expenditure in terms of installation, maintenance and training. We provide a truly unbiased and completely independent assessment of your premises and we only advise you on what to do to ensure you comply with the law, and make your premises safe from fire.

Currently working with Homes in Sedgemoor to provide a fire risk assessment to all their blocks of flats (approx 161) in the Sedgemoor area.
