Fire Safety Audits & Risk Assessments
The occurrence of any fire has the potential to cause severe damage to both life and property. A Fire Safety Audit is the most effective tool for assessing the fire safety standards of your facility. It helps the owners to identify areas where improvement can be made and develop an action plan, in addition to emergency preparedness and mock drills.
IM & CB is also offer a mandatory fire safety inspection. It is a legal requirement for every building owner to undertake a fire safety inspection of the essential services installed within their property.
