“Very competent service helping us see through some red tape, to ensure we understand what it is we must and should do and what other aspects would be good practice”
Why do our customers choose us?
To comply with legal duties under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, Acorn Health & Safety regularly undertake fire risk assessments in a wide variety of premises including office, shops, factories, residential accommodation, meeting places and businesses
Whether you are a landlord seeking an assessment for common areas of a building or a business/organisation requiring an assessment of your premises, we can help.
All assessments are undertaken by qualified health and safety professionals who offer independent, impartial comment as we don’t sell fire extinguishers or install alarm systems. We work with a wide variety of businesses/organisations and look holistically at fire safety taking into account the premises, its activities and those working, residing in or visiting them.
Post assessment we are able to provide on-going support, advice and comment and answer any questions you might have.
Acorn Health & Safety is a leading provider of health and safety training and consultancy in the South West. Our consultants come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds and have considerable, hands on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
Customers come from an equally diverse range of organisations and businesses but choose Acorn because we’ll keep you on the right side of the law, whilst recognising that health and safety needs to compliment your day to day business activities.
How do we support you with fire risk assessments?
After an initial conversation where we will explore your needs, we’ll provide a fixed price quotation before visiting the premises to undertake a fire risk assessment. Visits to properties can be accompanied, alternatively we’ll make the necessary arrangements to gain access. In most cases, there is no need to gain access to domestic tenant occupied areas of a property.
When undertaking a fire risk assessment we’ll walk round all areas of the premises (including outside storage/parking etc.) We’ll speak with the responsible person, or members of staff if on-site, and finally examine a variety of fire safety related documentation. We’ll also (with your permission) take a series of photos which help explain our findings. These can be particularly useful when visits are unaccompanied or during discussions after the assessment.
The latter includes servicing, maintenance and electrical safety records. Where these aren’t available or not easily accessible we’ll ask you to confirm by way of a declaration that necessary checks and tests are in place.
What should you expect from Acorn Health & Safety?
Within a few days, you’ll receive a copy of your fire risk assessment which will include a summary of our findings/observations and where necessary an action plan containing recommendations we advise that you take to comply with your statutory duties and best practice.
All fire risk assessments are presented as colour PDF files, which if required can be printed in hard copy.
Following any piece of consultancy work we are available by phone or on e-mail, so you can contact us easily, if you need our assistance or further advice.
