What Automatic Alarms Ltd Can Do for You

As one of the North West’s leading providers of fire risk assessments, we have much to offer our clients in and around Greater Manchester. This is what you can expect from us…

Trained and Competent Staff

All current fire safety legislation in the UK stems from the Regulatory Reform Act 2005, which superseded previous fire safety legislation, such as the Fire Precautions Act 1971. Our fire safety specialists have undergone full training with the Fire Protection Association (FPA) and are competent in carrying out all risk assessments and subsequent reviews.

Thorough Fire Risk Assessment

To comply fully with the Regulatory Reform Act 2005, your fire risk assessment must cover a lot of ground. These are just some of the areas we need to check, as part of your regular assessment.

  • potential sources of ignition
  • design of the premises
  • removal or safe storage of dangerous substances
  • fire detection and warning systems
  • signage throughout the premises
  • equipment available to fight fire
  • emergency routes and exits
  • emergency fire evacuation plans
  • the needs of vulnerable people (e.g., the elderly, young children or those with disabilities)
  • staff fire safety training
  • testing routine and maintenance schedules of equipment
  • record keeping

Detailed Recommendations

The risk assessment shows the potential fire hazards at your property, hazards that our fire safety experts will attempt to mitigate. Based on their findings, they will offer a range of recommendations for keeping your property and people safe. These may include new fire safety equipment and emergency lighting, or something simpler, like improved evacuation guidelines and signage. Whatever the recommendations, we can help you implement those changes.

Regular Fire Safety Reviews

When it comes to fire safety, you are expected to perform regular reviews of your existing procedures. This ensures that all fire safety measures remain up to code and that any changes – whether to your procedures or the legislations – are accounted for. We provide annual reviews and fire risk assessments for your company, to ensure the continued safety of your staff and customers.
