fire risk assessments
fire risk assessments Leeds-based Jackson Fire & Security have recently completed fire risk assessments for the RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield & District Branch, across five sites in Leeds & Wakefield. The Leeds & Wakefield Branch of the RSPCA were looking to review their existing fire risk assessments and solutions across their multiple sites in West Yorkshire. It was time to look at refreshing their health and safety procedures and they contacted Jackson Fire & Security to assist. The firm, based in the Potternewton area of Leeds, carried out fire risk assessments across six sites leading to some recommendations and improvements to the animal charity’s five locations in the area. The fire and security specialists carried out the servicing of the fire alarm, emergency lighting and fire extinguishers across all five properties and planned visits to assess each of the properties requirements individually. As a result of the service, the Leeds-based Jackson engineer made recommendations for replacement fire extinguishers and an upgrade to the fire alarm system at the Roundhay shop. The Leeds branch engineer installed a conventional CTEC fire alarm system with Hochiki protocol and 12 devices, consisting of fire alarm call points and smoke detectors. The firm are also updating fire alarm zone plans for three branch shops. Jackson Fire & Security branch director, Kris Milner said: “We were happy to offer our expertise to this local charity which does such great work in our region. “We identified the upgrades to the different properties required during the fire risk assessment stage, the charity are a pleasure to work with and keen to improve fire safety across all their sites.”
RSPCA Leeds & Wakefield branch manager, Caroline Lewis-Jones said: “During a general upgrade of our retail premises in 2017, it was an opportunity to revisit our current fire risk assessments and take a fresh look at fire prevention and general health & safety. “Kris Milner and his team have been very responsive to our needs as a small charity, doing our best for animal welfare. Nothing has been too much trouble, always receiving sensible advice and a balanced considered approach has been taken throughout. “Jackson’s have helped the branch maintain fire safety and remain compliant with all standards required of an employer.”
