FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT FOR BUSINESSES
LFS offers a fully compliant Fire Risk Assessment for businesses to ensure their premises are safe.
The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (2005) requires anyone that operates from non-domestic premises to carry out a fire risk assessment. Where there are more than five employees, a record must be kept of significant findings. They must include assessing the risk and likelihood of a fire and its consequences and then implementing the appropriate measures to eliminate or reduce said risks.
Our dedicated and experienced team will evaluate the risks and measure them on likelihood and severity from low to high, meaning you can easily decipher the critical areas of improvement. In addition, our extensive fire protection service includes the supply, installation, and maintenance of a vast range of fire protection equipment.

FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS FOR RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES
LFS also offers a fully compliant Fire Risk Assessment for residential properties in London to ensure that homes are safe for those who live there and their neighbours.
Our services help prevent fires and ensure homeowners and residents are equipped with the knowledge they need to avoid the risks of fires occurring within the home. Fires at home are something that is often thought of as rare but the London Fire Brigade alone dealt with nearly 17,000 fires during the 2020/2021 financial year, across the city of London (source: London Fire Brigade).
A residential fire risk assessment is crucial for both home-owners and landlords in ensuring that your property and the people who inhabit the space are safe. This can help reduce risks of fire and save costs by identifying potential vulnerabilities and hazards in the property. Rectifying any issues that arise as a result of the risk assessment is the best way to prevent the worst from happening whilst maintaining your property.
THE IMPORTANCE OF A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT
Not only is it law to have an up-to-date fire risk assessment carried out on any business premises, but a fire risk assessment gives you peace of mind knowing all risks have been identified, and the area has been made a safer space. It’s just as essential to keep it regularly updated. Here’s why:
YOUR FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT MAY BECOME INVALID
Despite every effort, fires do sometimes occur. If the fire risk assessment has been completed thoroughly, the damage should be minimal. In the event of a fire, a new fire risk assessment must be undertaken to highlight what went wrong and improve it to ensure it doesn’t happen again. If fire extinguishers or other equipment was used, these also must be reviewed in the risk assessment.
EQUIPMENT NEEDS TO BE CHECKED REGULARLY
Faulty equipment would be hazardous in the event of a fire. Regular fire assessment will help keep track of servicing your equipment and ensure they’re working to full potential.
Any fire risk assessment undertaken by LFS will ensure cover all bases and give you peace of mind your business is fully equipped in fire prevention and safety.
