Risk Assessment


Risk Assessment is a major part of Means of Escape's offering. Risk Assessment legislation can be confusing for individuals, businesses and institutions and so Means of Escape designed their Guide to theFire Risk Assessment.
As well as general Risk Assessment the Means of Escape Fire Safety Audit Guide enables the responsible person to complete their fire risk assessment and file of evidence.
Means of escape's objective is to improve awareness of the need to be vigilant against fire, not just because of legislation but because it makes good business sense as few small to medium organisations remain in business following a serious fire.
New legislation states that responsibility is now in the hands of the owner, manager or employer who must complete a fire risk assessment. No longer can you rely on a fire certificate as a means of showing all has been done to ensure fire safety.
