We received a website enquiry from a dance studio owner who found our comprehensive and in-depth website via a local Google search: ‘Fire Extinguisher Companies Crewe’, a same day telephone call was made to the prospective customer, answering their initial questions, followed by arranging an appointment to attend site to assess and quote the following day.
Upon arrival, our engineer assessed the small commercial units which both measured approximately 250m2 per floor, sited on a multi-occupancy business park being used as a dance school; they discussed the legal requirement (The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005) for a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment which wasn’t in place at the time of attending, a referral was then made to our recommended Fire Risk Assessor, who arranged to attend the following week.
After discussing the portable fire extinguisher assessment with the ‘Responsible Person’, it was recommended several fire extinguisher points consisting of 1 x 3-Litre Water Additive (13A BSI Kitemarked UKCA) and 1 x 2KG CO2 Carbon Dioxide (34B BSI Kitemarked UKCA) extinguishers were to be installed, to provide suitable and sufficient first-aid fire-fighting cover for the identified fire risks (wood, paper & textiles and electrical) present throughout the unit areas, also allowing for ‘aiding escape’ from the units in the event of a fire.
The customer agreed with our assessment fully. An engineer attended the following day to supply, commission, install and certify the said extinguishers. Upon completion, our engineer provided a ‘without-charge’ 3-year fire safety logbook & basic fire safety training booklet, enabling the responsible person to fully understand their legal obligations, and underpin their ongoing fire safety processes and procedures.
There were some old extinguishers in the said units, which were initially safety checked and then used for on-site ‘practical fire extinguisher training with the staff present; it was fed back that this training was extremely informative, providing them with the necessary skills to know which types of fire risks are present in their workplace, and which extinguisher(s) is needed in the event of an undeveloped fire occurring – the old extinguishers were then removed from site under our Waste Transfer Licence and environmentally disposed of, via our approved contractor.Read our 5 star reviews
