In short, the current legislation requires that any workplace with five or more employees, or the common areas in residential flats, must have a Fire Risk Assessment carried out and for it to be reviewed regularly (in general it is considered best practice for the assessment to be carried out annually). Failure to do so could result in your premises being served with enforcement or prohibition notices by the Fire Service, often resulting in loss or disruption to your business.

Anyone can tick a box. Adena Fire goes further by providing clear and concise explanations of good practice and areas that fall short of fire safety requirements.

Recommendations you can follow
Your Fire Risk Assessment report will provide recommendations in laymen’s terms as to the actions that need to be taken to make your premises safe for everyone that visits or works in it. Not least, we make sure you have the right tools and information to ensure your compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
All of our Assessors are serving or recently retired Officers from the British Fire Service with vast experience of the commercial sector. All our Fire Risk Assessments are carried out in accordance with BSI and IFE best practice (PAS 79). The findings are then translated into user friendly, easy to implement, cost effective fire safety solutions for your business to action quickly and efficiently.
