November Newsletter: FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS ‘FRA's’

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 - 09:15

November Newsletter: FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS ‘FRA's’        


Fact 1: Our most searched for webpage is on Fire Training

Fact 2: FRA's represent our most common new customer query

Why should this be?

Maybe it’s because there is a very real, and very present danger from NOT having an up-to-date FRA.

Not only is there the increased fire hazard risk, but there is also the reputational and financial hardship from being named & shamed, and then fined for good measure.

So, perhaps you’d like to know how to avoid the common pitfalls associated with FRAs, or maybe you would like to check that you are as compliant as you think? Either way, please give us a call – we’d be happy to advise where possible, and to see how we at MCFP could help.
