Premises Fire Risk Assessment
888-Group will act as the ‘Competent Person’ on behalf of the Client to carry out Fire Risk Assessment Surveys and produce subsequent reports in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
These will include a list of prioritised ‘significant findings’ that the Client must action. We will, on requested, offer options for compliance with the findings in the light of relevant current Approved Codes of Practice, British Standards and other technical documents.

Fire Safety Reports (Generic and Specific)
Where requested 888-Group will meet with Organisational representatives to discuss their specific needs in relation to Fire Safety matters. Help you to comply with the requirements of the Legislation and or, to draft an overarching fire safety Management strategy for the organisation. It could be the creation of a specific fire safety policy/procedure for dealing with a particular risk, for example, a school that intends to open their doors to members of the public for evening classes or a means of escape policy for disabled persons.

Training
If required, 888-Group is able to identify and create specific training programmes based on organisational need. It is envisaged however that training in the following areas will be commonly delivered;
- Awareness sessions based on the requirements of the legislation(all Organisational levels)
- Procedural and fire awareness training to fire wardens/marshals and other responsible organisational employees.
- Updates on changes to Legislation and Technical documents

Evacuation

We all hope this will not need to happen but being businessmen and managers we know we need to be prepared – the Health and Safety Corporate Manslaughter Legislation ensures we need to prepare.

Practice makes perfect, being aware of what to do helps and yet someone may still get hurt or even killed but going through an auditable process will help protect you and your business.

We will develop your plans with you and your staff and put in place a system of training and ongoing exercising as required by you with the needs of the business in mind.
