Fire safety inspections
The legislation around fire door safety is extensive and for good reason. The safety of your staff and premises is of the utmost importance but it is often something that is unknowingly compromised. The 'Fire Door' is the first line of defence between you and the fire and plays a crucial role in restricting the spread of fire and smoke, thus reducing injury, property damage and death.
When you call upon the services of Guardian Doors - we will quickly establish if the products you have in place have been well maintained and that both you and your premises are fully compliant as well as safe.
Based on a recent risk assessment or building conditions survey, our inspector will visit your premises and make recommendations to ensure compliance is achieved. This scope could be broadened to include 'Fire Compartments' and/or 'Escape Routes'. – See our Fire risk assessment service.
Our inspection report will advise on the status, taking into account gaps, glazing and door hardware. It will also advise on the suitability of upgrading existing leafs as preferable to a full replacement. The report will outline a set of recommendations, including essential works required to meet the current guidelines, as well as a list of non-critical but advisable works.

What you need to know about the "Fire Reform Order"
The main emphasis of the changes made by the RRO 2005 is towards fire prevention:
- Fire certificates were abolished and ceased to have any legal status.
- Under the RRO 2005 a ‘responsible person’ must be appointed for each premises.
- The ‘responsible person’ is required to carry out an assessment of the risks (fire risk assessment) of fire and take steps to preferably remove, but if not, reduce the risks.
- Provide information, instruction and training to your employees about the fire precautions in your workplace.
- Provide and maintain such fire precautions as are necessary to safeguard those who use the workplace.
7/10 UK businesses fail to reopen after serious smoke or fire damage.
How we can help
The obligations placed upon organisations and individuals to comply with Health & Safety legislation is onerous and often difficult to comprehend. Even the Health & Safety Executive, a government funded organisation is unable to offer you a definitive list of legislation that applies to your unique set of circumstances. Their view seems to be that you decide what is appropriate from the existing extensive list of legislation.
At Guardian, we have invested time and effort on your behalf by compiling a detailed matrix of legislation and business types to enable us to carry out a Health & Safety Audit, which will identify:
- What you shoud be doing
- What you are doing
- What you need to be doing
Should you have completed your own audit or know specifically what risk assessment you need to carryout, then Guardian can provide these for you, using our unique approach, cutting out bureaucracy and providing detailed, easy to follow, action plans to assist you implementing the findings simply and effectively with the minimum of effort.
Our services to you last for a whole year from the date of the inspection. Please feel free to contact us at any time discuss any aspect of your fire safety needs within that period at no additional cost.
