With 35 years background in buildings insurance underwriting and the assessment design & installation of all aspects of Life Safety. Veritas can provide you and your business with independent pragmatic and cost effective direction on your Life Safety needs.
Covid 19 and FRA Requirements
Current movement issues and restrictions on site access are affecting everyone at this time, however, it must be understood that the requirements of the fire safety order and the need for ongoing risk assessment programs have not stopped, if therefore your site is due for a new FRA or an existing site that is due a return visit and review these works must still be undertaken.
Insurance issues notwithstanding, in the event of a fire or an issue with HSE/FRS you will still need to have dealt with all of the issues from a previous FRA and its action plan to ensure that both your insurance cover and your relationship with the enforcement authorities is not compromised.
Veritas is ready and able to help you, subject to upgraded RAMS procedures to ensure everyone is safe and protected as much as is practicable.
Please therefore get in touch in the event we can help.

I have been working with Steve for the last year or so, it’s surprisingly refreshing that he actually looks at the hazards as opposed to the normal inert tick box approach.
I have also learned a lot from the experience as he has become a friend and the go-to place for information, if he does not know the answer, he knows a man that does.
Thanks for your help Steve.
Having worked with Steve for over 10 years he has become our go-to man for both fire risk assessments and qualification on compliance for all life safety issues.
Phoenix Bespoke Solutions are delighted to be working in partnership with Veritas for future FRA works and consider his support an invaluable tool to help out business and our clients.
