As the owner, landlord or occupier of business premises, you are the legally designated 'responsible person' charged with fire safety.

Our services are here to help -

As the 'responsible person' you need to ensure that a fire risk assessment of your premises is undertaken and reviewed regularly.

ASA Fire Safety can remove this worry by acting as your 'competent person' and undertaking the assessment on your behalf, covering -

  • Fire hazards and risks
  • Emergency routes and exits
  • Detection  warning systems and fire fighting equipment
  • Evacuation plans and fire safety training requirements

Full documentation is provided, ensuring that you satisfy your regulatory requirements.


All small business premises need to be equipped with fire extinguishers.  But, the type of  extinguishers you require are determined by the premises you occupy and the risks you face.

It is vital that the right extinguishers are installed - attempting to tackle a fire with the wrong type of extinguisher can have devastating consequences.

But, in all cases, your extinguishers need to be inspected and tested regularly and documented test records retained.

ASA Fire Safety will ensure that the right extinguishers are installed and that they are inspected and tested regularly.  We will also provide you with the required documentation.

Your premises need to be equipped with appropriate fire detection and warning systems and emergency lighting, all of which need to be properly installed, tested, maintained and documented.

The decision is not easy!  There is a real danger of both under and over-investing in equipment that is not fit for purpose.

ASA Fire Safety will ensure that you have the right level of equipment for your specific requirements.  And, of course, we will make sure that it is properly installed, maintained and documented.


As the responsible person, you need to ensure that your staff receive the necessary fire safety training.  New staff must be taught your procedures and at least one fire drill is required per year and you need to record and retain the results.

Nominated fire safety marshals also need to be trained and ASA Fire Safety offers cost effective solutions to these needs.  Click here for more information and to book your place.
