Business Description

Fire Risk Assessor in Ashford, Kent

I am an Independent Fire Safety Consultant based in Ashford, Kent offering Fire Risk Assessments and Fire Safety Sign Audit and reviews to small and medium sized businesses throughout Kent. I have been involved in Fire Safety for the last 30 years.

As an Independent Fire Risk Assessor my aim is simple and that is to provide straightforward, honest and impartial advice. I want to help my clients meet their obligations under legislation, but also and perhaps more importantly, assist them in providing a safe workplace for their staff and visitors. As an Independent Assessor any recommendations I make will be based on best practice.

The main service I provide is Fire Risk Assessments on small to medium size properties which can include offices, shops, Homes of Multiple Occupation (HMO's), communal areas of blocks of flats and Primary Schools. In fact if a business employs people they need to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment (5 or more employees and they need to record the significant findings).

Throughout my career in fire safety my work has taken me all over the country, but since setting up NJH Fire Consultancy last year my aim was to try and work more locally to where I live. Therefore, I have joined the BoB networking group in Maidstone in the hope of achieving a better work life balance.

In addition to providing Fire Risk Assessments I also offer a Fire Safety Sign audit and review service for businesses. This is a service where I advice my clients on having the correct number of signs in the right locations to meet their legal obligations, but at the same time not providing duplicate and unnecessary signs. This service can include new builds and existing premises that have perhaps seen signs added on an ad hoc basis. Companies and premises where I have provided this service to include the BBC, London Zoo, Olympic Stadium and Kodak.

So if you, or any one one your customers, require a Fire Risk Assessment, or fire safety Sign Audit and Review, please drop me an email, or give me a call.
