Fire safety, security and electrical installations for the health and social care sector across London and the South East

Whether you specialise in residential or nursing care, palliative care, offer care to service users with dementia or provide day care facilities for the community, we can provide comprehensive advice on how to safeguard human life and ensure you remain compliant, now and always.

Our fire and security systems slip seamlessly into the care environment. Minimising disruption is integral to our planning.

With over 25 years of experience in fire protection we know to look at each project individually. If you have unique requirements such as high levels of care, including Dementia Care, we can provide the peace of mind that end-users are safe. Upon installation, we can provide safety training to staff and managers – ensuring that our fire and security systems are utilised to their full potential when protecting people.

In some cases visual alarms may be more suitable than traditional, audible alarms. These systems can be tailored so all staff know what they mean – whilst not increasing unnecessary distress in the event of an evacuation.

We’ve built up a wealth experience providing fire and security solutions for the care sector. We hold the answers to common fire risk queries, as well as more obscure problems which can be found within care environments.

Your legal duties within a
Care Home environment

Whilst your ‘duty of care’ stretches to a number of situations and scenarios within care, there are particular requirements that fall under ‘Fire Safety’ that responsible parties must adhere to.

Working with the team at Fuzion4, we can help you understand how you can meet these regulations. In the process, we can create a thorough fire risk assessment for your property to ensure service users, staff and visitors alike are safe and anyone responsible for their safety remains compliant at all times.

Fire Risk Assessments for Care facilities

Through comprehensive fire risk assessments and effective fire safety management we ensure your care facility adheres to practical methods of compliance. By planning and eliminating the major threats of fire within your premises we actively take measures to protect lives, property, you and your future. Let us help you to plan ahead and protect what matters the most.

Identifying your legal responsibilities

It is a legal requirement to assess care premises to identify risk to human life from fire, and take appropriate fire safety measures. You also have a duty of care to ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the safety of service users, employees and all other visitors within your care premises.

Generic risk assessments are not sufficient and therefore any fire risk assessment carried out must be specific to fire safety and your own care facility.

Through comprehensive fire risk assessments we can provide advice and effective fire safety solutions to detect fire risk and aid evacuation within your care home setting, providing total peace of mind at every stage of the process.

Identifying levels of risk within your care facility

There are numerous ways for a potential fire to begin within a care premises- through fire risk assessments we can help you identify the threat of fire and provide fire safety solutions to protect human life, property and assets.

Through a range of techniques we are able to identify potential ignition sources and materials that could allow a fire to begin in your care premises, whether it be accidentally, deliberately or through lack of precautions and efficient maintenance.

Ensure you comply with all new British Standards

Care homes have their own distinct requirements and potential problems that must be addressed early in the design stage of your fire system. Identifying your service users and their disabilities is essential – only then can we design a fire strategy that is appropriate for your environment.

There are a great deal of possibilities to consider. For example, visual alarms such as strobes and beacons must adhere to strict light levels.

If you have not considered some of the finer points of your fire safety planning, speak with our experts and we’ll happily work with you to meet your duty of care.

Whilst fire systems can provide early warnings of fire, the correct procedure to evacuate residents is ultimately what saves lives. Alarms and sounders should be considered appropriate for the characteristics of residents and not be counter productive to the efforts of staff.

Situations differ for all types of care – where some require little additional requirements to aid evacuation, there are others who will require extra assistance.
