FIRE SAFETY SERVICES

Our qualified engineers offer a range of services including:
 
FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS

Fire risk assessments are at the heart of modern health & safety management and should be carried out on a regular basis. They are an important part of keeping your workers and your business safe.  

Red Fire Safety Services Ltd can carry out fire risk assessments on buildings of any size or complexity and make reasoned judgements on the levels of risk presented. All fire risk assessments carried out are fully documented and include full descriptions of our findings, associated photographs of issues and recommendations.

If required, we can advise on any non-compliances raised and if changes are required, we can recommend cost effective solutions.

 
PORTABLE APPLIANCE TESTING (PAT) SERVICE

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination, but some types of defect can only be found by testing.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury must be maintained in a safe condition. To meet this requirement, it is recommended that regular inspection and testing of electrical equipment is carried out. 

 Red Fire Safety Services Ltd qualified engineers can: 

  • Design an inspection and test schedule appropriate for your electrical equipment and the environment it is used in.

  • Carry out visual inspections on a regular basis

  • Carry out Portable Appliance Testing on a regular basis

 
FIRE SAFETY AND FIRST AID TRAINING COURSES

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all staff must be provided with adequate fire safety training when they are first employed, when there is a new risk and refresher training should be provided on a periodic basis. We have a range of courses available to meet your fire safety training needs.

All Red Fire Safety Services Ltd training courses are carried out on the customer’s premises with each course participant receiving relevant training materials, such as training manuals and pocket guides etc. A certificate is issued upon successful completion of the course. Please note that for the practical elements of the fire protection courses an outdoor area of at least 5 metres by 5 metres clear area must be available.

​We recognise that it may not be possible for all staff to attend courses at the same time so booking of multiple courses to take place on the same occasion at the same location will receive a discount on each course booked in addition to the first course.

  • Basic Fire Protection Training

FIRE SAFETY MANAGEMENT SERVICES

In our experience, many companies fall foul of the Government Regulations concerning fire safety matters for example there may not be a lack of fire training, but there may be problems with how the training is recorded and managed.

We offer a complete fire safety management service for your business which is tailored to your specific requirements.  This may include: 

  • Writing and reviewing fire safety policy and risk assessments for your business

  • Providing relevant, up to date and timely staff fire training making sure your people get what they need when they need it

  • Integrating systems which are already in place or introducing new systems, if required, with your fire safety policy and reviewing these when necessary.

  • Reviewing the maintenance process for your fire safety equipment and assessing if this maintenance adheres to British Standards and is properly certified

MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS
Red Fire Safety Service Ltd offer flexible and cost-effective fire safety equipment maintenance contracts where our qualified engineers will service and maintain your fire safety detection systems and equipment to the appropriate British Standards on a regular basis.  We also offer a 24-hour emergency callout for customers who have a maintenance contract with us.  On call services may require a monitoring contract with a third-party monitoring station which Red Fires Safety Services Ltd can arrange on your behalf if required.

Prior to agreeing a maintenance contract our engineers will carry out an initial fire safety inspection which will include:

  • An inspection of all existing documentation and maintenance records

  • Confirmation of which British Standards the equipment has been installed to

  • A test of Manual Call Points (MCPs)

  • A test of resettable detectors

  • A test of audio and visual alarm devices

Following the inspection, the customer will be informed of any non-compliance issues identified along with a Red Fire Safety Services Ltd maintenance contract quotation.

As part of our servicing and maintenance contract our engineers will record all inspections, servicing and maintenance work carried out, tests and defects identified/resolved providing you with a complete record of all activities associated with your fire safety system. Upon successful completion of servicing and maintenance our engineers will issue any associates certificates required.

 

FIRE EVACUATION PLANS & DRILLS

Regulations specify that all premises should have an emergency evacuation plan for use in the event of a fire and that the plan should be tested as part of a fire drill at least every 6 months.

  • Attending your site to supervise your fire drills
