Global Facilities provides reactive, planned and project works across all property sectors.
Ensuring fire safety measures are put in place, prioritised and managed efficiently.
In 2021, there were a staggering 280 fire-related fatalities in the UK. The Grenfell Tower fire and its inquiry have inspired a number of changes to the law, that will be coming into play from 2023. It’s more important than ever to make sure fire safety is a priority and that your building and the people within it are protected from risks.
As a facilities management company, we offer a comprehensive fire safety service, from routine inspections of all fire equipment (such as alarms, extinguishers and fire doors), through to installations and rectifying risks.
Services we offer:
Fire Safety Inspections
Keeping yourself and others safe should be of utmost importance when it comes to fire protection.
Our services include routine fire safety inspections of your building’s fire safety equipment, to ensure that occupiers are adequately protected. We provide specialists to check over workplaces and give you peace of mind, knowing that you’re complying with the latest fire safety legislation.
When visiting, our industry-qualified inspectors will check over all fire prevention appliances, such as your fire alarm systems, fire doors and fire extinguishers – making sure your protections are fit for purpose in the event of a fire.
Our business is to keep you safe, and a fire safety risk assessment could make all the difference in the case of your own fire protection.
Fire Door Checks
Having adequate fire doors should be an essential part of your fire safety strategy.
Without your fire doors meeting the necessary industry standards, fires can potentially be allowed to spread far more easily, putting yourself and others at risk.
Our fire door checks are completed by surveyors registered with the NAFDI (National Association of Fire Door Inspectors), so building owners can feel safe in the knowledge that they’re dealing with industrial experts, who will run their fire risk assessment with the expected professionalism.
Global Facilities provide fire door inspections that will inspect, and ensure that your fire doors are safe from fire hazards, and compliant with industry regulations.
Have any questions on the day? Our helpful inspectors will be more than happy to answer.
Since its founding in 2009, Global Facilities has proven itself as an industry-leading facilities management company – outsourcing services in a wide range of industries. These include building maintenance, commercial cleaning and IT services, to name a few.
We pride ourselves on being connected with some of the highest-rated professionals in these industries, and as a result have become recognised as one of the UK’s go-to facility management companies.
We’re also proud to be a part of the award-winning Global Group – an organisation founded to not only help workplaces save on facility costs, but to help them go more eco-friendly.
At a time when 250 million tonnes worth of harmful waste and emissions are created by workplace environments on a yearly basis, we felt that it was our mission to help reduce this with each business we work with – even by using small simple methods, such as providing eco-friendly office supplies or providing LED lighting.
Whatever you require, we’re here to help you get what you need for your business.

The definition of fire safety is essentially the necessary planning and actions taken to protect the public from fire hazards.
These measures include preventing the chances of fires to ignite, and effectively controlling those that do – limiting the spread of the fire and the damage caused as a result. This includes limiting building damage or physical harm caused to a person.
Examples of actions could be installing fire doors, fire alarms and fire extinguishers in buildings, to slow down and effectively tackle fires when they break out. Other important safety measures include turning off a gas appliances when finished, or using non-flammable materials.
1 ) Review the fire hazards – Identifying the hazards should be the first task when going through fire safety measures. This would be identifying heat-generating electrical outlets such as plug sockets and lead cables, fuel sources (petrol and paper as examples), and sources of oxygen, such as open windows and doors.
2) Identify those people at risk – Children, the elderly and the disabled, are usually those most vulnerable to fire hazards. Their needs need to be met to ensure a quick, safe exit from the building if a fire was to break out.
3) Evaluate and implement measures needed – You'll now need to work out what's necessary to protect those most vulnerable. This will be spotting what could be done to make occupiers safer, and implementing new changes, which could be anything from installing a new fire door or fire extinguisher to bringing in new fire exits with easier access.
4) Record findings, prepare plan and provide training – Make sure to keep a record of all changes made in the previous step. Once you have this, you can provide a plan on what all building occupiers are to do in the event of a fire, and let them know this information, so that everyone is best prepared if a fire was to break out.
5) Regularly review and update fire risk assessment – Make sure to regularly assess all your fire safety protections you have in place. Risk assessments should ideally be reviewed once a year.
