Fire Risk Assessment: Case Study
We recently conducted a fire risk assessment for a group of companies in Cardiff who were adamant that they wanted to operate a safe and compliant business. The online betting business, which had expanded in larger offices due to growth, owned a casino sites online brand and a website that compared free bets offers. After our visit, the employees said they felt safer and happier at work. The company also ensured that it was up-to-date with its fire safety requirments and was not at risk of being fined; something that can be detrimental to growing brands like this.
