A fire risk assessor should be just that, not a salesman
making recommendations to then subsequently profit from the recommendations in his
report. How often do we see
recommendations in a report that the company or a sister company can profit
from? Compartmentation surveys that are
not required? Fire warden training for
every member of staff? Three Co2
extinguishers in a single tiny plant room?
I have carried out some assessments on the back of a recent
fire extinguisher technician visit and seen numerous over supplies of fire
extinguishers that defies belief. Are
they covering there back or just trying to profit?
Either way, let’s assess each building on its merit and find
some common sense. Maybe they do need all those things but not
always and the client deserves better.
