Fire safety management
BRE offers a range of products from full fire risk management systems to individual policies or procedures to help control the risk to your people, business and property, and the environment.
We have a full understanding of the legislation and regulations that affect your company. We can help you to identify the risks in your organisation through fire risk assessments, fire safety management and fire risk management systems.
Fire safety engineering
Fire Safety Engineering is the application of scientific and engineering principles based on understanding the effects of fire, the reaction of people to fire, and how to protect people, property and the environment.
We undertake fire safety strategies for new buildings and for refurbishments, as well as reviewing existing strategies as an independent third party.
Fire and security products
One of the challenges of making buildings safe and secure, is selecting and installing fire safety and security products and services that actually do what they claim.
The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) has been working with industry and government for more than 100 years to set the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB offers third-party approval confirming that products and services have met and will continue to meet these standards.
The Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) and details of LPCB approved products and services are at RedBookLive.com
