The Fire Safety Rating Scheme

Keeping you compliant and in control of your fire safety responsibilities

IT'S OUR BUSINESS TO KEEP YOU SAFE

Welcome to the Fire Safety Rating Scheme. The only scheme in the UK that keeps your business, buildings and employees safer from the risk of fire.

To do this, we will guide you through a short self-assessment questionnaire that covers areas such as the structure of your building, internal fittings and fire safety provisions. We then take this information to gauge your fire risk levels and issue you with an official Fire Safety Rating, together with certification that you can display.

At a fixed cost of £249, it’s a small price to pay for your peace of mind, and your employees, visitors or tenants can see that you’re making their safety a priority.

KEY BENEFITS

Reduce Risk

Fire risk is real, and in the last year has affected nearly 16,000 UK businesses. We are dedicated to reducing the risk to life through fire and by using this scheme, you are further demonstrating your commitment to protect not only your business, but the lives of your employees, contractors and visitors.

Protect Assets

Your employees and the buildings that they work in are often your most valuable business assets. Protect them by reviewing your processes and ensuring that your business is a safe place to be, proving that your duty of care is being taken seriously. A desirable quality to new employees and customers alike.

Retain Control

You are in control of your records. If you were selected for a random visit from the fire service or other enforcing body, you can access and print your personal Fire Safety Rating Scheme certificate that we issue you with, showing that you have a clear fire safety process in place.

Reduce Costs

As well as reducing the risk of fire, we are working towards being able to save you money. We are in discussions with leading UK insurance providers that will manage your insurance and give you discounts based on the assessment rating that you receive. The safer your business is, the better the insurance premium!

KICK START YOUR COMPLIANCE

We are experts in the fire industry and have the qualifications and experience required to assess your business and keep you safe. All members of the assessment team have worked in the fire service, and therefore have first hand experience of the damage that a fire can cause to people, buildings and businesses.

We don’t take the impact of fire lightly, and the questions that we ask throughout the rating process are there to ensure that your risk of fire is kept to a minimum. It is your responsibility to ensure that your self-assessment is as honest and accurate as possible, so that working together we can ensure you are compliant and protected.
