All our Inspectors are ex Fire Service and Members of the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers.

Our priority is you.

We know that not everyone has an in-depth knowledge of Fire Safety. First of all, we listen so that we understand exactly what your requirements are.

The assessor will then find the right solution and explain the process ‐ we don’t bombard you with jargon ‐ we keep it simple and get straight to the point.

Midland Risk believe in fire risk assessment as a means of making people and their property safe from fire. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by striving to prevent that fire in the first place.

BB 100 is a design guide, which identifies how the requirements for Life Safety, contained in the Building Regulations, can be met in the design of a new School or an Extension.

Local Government Guidance. Fire Safety Risk Assessment.

•Small to Medium Places of Assembly
•Large Places of Assembly
•Places of Worship

We not only know how to satisfy the Guidance, we know how best to use it, for example; In any Licensed Premise, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 takes precedence over the Licensing Authority and therefore any restrictions on the Premise, such as the capacity limit, would have to be in accordance with the findings of the Fire Risk Assessment.

A Fire Risk Assessment is a Legislative requirement that you have to meet but it should also meet your expectations and work for you.
