Multiple tenants in properties inevitably multiplies the risks. Even with on-site caretakers or security, it can be difficult to influence or control tenant behaviour to ensure building-wide compliance.
Multi-occupied properties are Metro Safety's speciality - we work with over 1,000 property agents nationwide. Our solutions are designed to reduce the time you need to spend on compliance so you can focus on your core business activities.
They have continued to provide genuinely cost-effective compliance for us.
With such a wide variety of occupants, building ages and types, it’s important that your Fire Risk Assessment is carried out by someone competent. Our assessors are all qualified fire safety specialists. Many have over 25 years' experience with a county fire service, including a background in fire safety enforcement. Their in-depth commercial and legislative knowledge helps to make our assessment recommendations reasonable and practical, specifying workable solutions without underestimating the risks.
Remedial works require genuine expertise if they are to successfully balance financial realities with the demands of the legislation. To help you make the most of your service charges, Metro Safety have knowledgeable technical advisers with accredited design and procurement skills who can translate the findings of your Fire Risk Assessments into practical, cost-effective solutions, even on large or complex sites. We can also assist with the project management and implementation of any works required.
We understand that testing and maintenance routines can be problematic to manage, especially if there are multiple contractors involved or no on-site personnel. Our fully qualified engineers ensure that your fire safety systems are maintained to the right standards at the right frequency. Metro Safety’s nationwide network of dedicated testers take care of weekly and monthly testing routines, delivering a regular testing schedule to minimise disruption and confusion to tenants. We believe that we provide unsurpassed quality and reliability in testing and maintenance routines across the UK.
Their professionalism, reliability and quick responses give me the peace of mind I am seeking in this vital area.
We recognise that the turnover of site personnel and tenants can make retaining adequate fire safety knowledge challenging. Our fire safety training programmes can keep everyone up-to-date, from fire wardens and marshals to building managers, caretakers and security guards. Practising this training is essential in multi-occupied premises, which is why we carry out over 4,000 Fire Evacuation Drills per year across the UK. Suitable Fire Emergency Plans can also be devised according to your requirements.
Effectively managing your fire safety responsibilities can be difficult, particularly if you need to revisit and review multiple properties. With electronic reporting on an individual and portfolio basis, records both on and off site, and regular compliance reviews, we can help you maintain an overview and manage your responsibilities more effectively. To give you confidence in your continued compliance, Metro Safety can aid in the implementation of your fire safety policy as well as negotiating with your local fire authority when necessary.
