Fire risk assessments

Written fire risk assessments are required for all businesses of 5 or more people and are an essential way of ensuring that effective procedures are implemented to keep your premises and people safe by reducing the risk of fire, while also providing safe processes to follow if a fire should occur.

Your fire risk assessment (or FRA for short) is the starting point for all fire precautions activity. FRAs are live documents that must be reviewed and updated regularly following any changes in premises, processes, personnel, equipment or following a near-miss or real fire.

Black & Gold Fire Safety and Electrical Services Ltd is a fire risk assessment company with FRA-trained assessors able to provide you with an extensive fire risk assessment specific to your site and business, together with a written report highlighting significant findings and recommendations.

Our assessors will pay you a return visit to walk you through our findings and recommendations, as required by the FRA
