Fire Safety Audit Process

Fire Safety audits are carried out following nationally agreed guidelines so that any advice given to you is consistent and proportionate to the fire risk in your premises and to keep people safe.

We believe that prevention is better than cure and our Inspectors will actively work with you to advise and assist with meeting the standard required.

Our Inspectors carry out audits in a fair and open manner in accordance with the Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service Enforcement Policy Statement. (Currently under review)

All Fire Safety Inspectors are issued with an Authorisation Card (Service Identification Card) which will be shown to you on request. This gives the Inspector certain powers, which are summarised along with the legislation concerned in the following notes.
