FIRE SAFETY AUDIT

Organizing fire safety audits are extremely important for ensuring the effectiveness of the Fire Risk Management System.

Fire Safety Audits are more of a systematic overview of the fire prevention arrangements than the fire safety inspections and by their nature are intended to be less frequent and more in-depth than inspections.

HSGenerator specialist will inspect the premises and the relevant documentation in order to ascertain how the premises are being managed with regard to fire safety and to establish if the legislative requirements are being complied with. 

After Fire Safety Audit you will be given a report, which includes findings, recommendations and an action plan.
