Fire Risk Assessments

Fire risk assessments are at the heart of modern health and safety management. They are an important part of keeping your workers and your business safe.

At Ignis Safety Consultants Ltd we can carry out risk assessments on your behalf to PAS 79 standards for buildings of any size or complexity and make reasoned judgements on the level of risk presented.

We can advise on any non-compliance and advise on whether the risk is tolerable. If changes are required, we can advise and recommend cost effective solutions.

All fire risk assessments carried out by us are fully documented and include full descriptions of our findings, associated photographs of issues and recommendations. We will sit down with you and explain every element of our documentation fully until you are completely satisfied that you understand all findings and proposed solutions.

Fire Door Inspections

Fire resisting doorsets are a vital passive fire protection measure and will be found in almost all buildings, providing protection to escape routes and areas of high fire risk for example. They are often subject to damage due to misuse or general wear and tear and should undergo regular inspection to ensure they continue to function properly. 

Ignis Safety Consultants have the expertise to provide comprehensive, fire door surveys and deliver detailed reports on the condition of entire doorsets. 

Passive Fire Portection Inspections

Fire stopping can be defined as the sealing of any openings to prevent fire (including smoke and heat) from passing through multiple building compartments. 

These compartments are separated by compartment walls and compartment floors made of a fire-resisting construction that hinders the spread of fire from one area to another.

Fire stopping measures, when installed correctly, can contain a fire for up to four hours. This is so important because you’re then given plenty of time to fully evacuate a building, ensuring everyone on a premises is safe and sound should a fire occur.

A range of products can be installed into a building to help with fire stopping. Some of these include:

  • Fire-Rated Ablative Batt
  • Sealants
  • Pipe Collars and Pipe Wraps
  • Fire-Rated Paints and Coatings

Ignis Safety Consultants carry out fire stopping installation compliance checking and specification guidance and can formulate a fire stopping inspection register for inclusion in your premises Operation and Maintenance manuals.
