The Safety Business

Fire safety consulting services and audits


We only use the most qualified and experienced advisors for our fire and safety consulting services. Take Rob Alcott for example with over 30 years at senior level in the fire and rescue service. Rob holds an impressive list of fire service as well as industry qualifications.  And because of his practical experience he knows what can go wrong and what the consequences will be.

But Rob isn’t just a man with a clipboard!  He also understands your business needs and budget. So he’ll always offer practical, cost effective solutions to problems that allow for financial constraints and your building’s physical limitations.

With Rob on board, you can be sure our fire safety audit is the most thorough you’ll get. Here’s a brief overview of our audit:
