Pavhurst Associates are here to make everything that little bit easier.


Combined with many years of fire safety experience and our specially designed audit process, we ensure our clients’ premises are adequately assessed for fire risks to life, property and business continuity.

Our Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Included within the FRA would be a site visit by a fully qualified Fire Risk Assessor to identify/assess:

  • Who is at risk
  • Process/building hazards
  • Potential ignition sources
  • Any deficiencies in existing fire precautions/procedures
  • Correct types/quantities and maintained fire safety equipment
  • Appropriate fire training and drills
  • Appropriate signs/notices
  • Means of detecting fire & raising the alarm
  • Means of escape in the event of fire
  • Evaluation of fire records and emergency procedures

Following the site survey (fire risk assessment), a detailed document is produced and issued to the responsible person(s) including:

  • Documented fire risk assessment (based on PAS 79:2007)
  • List of significant findings,
  • Recommendations on remedial actions
  • Comprehensive Action Plan to minimize & manage risks within realistic timescales

A full and detailed consultation is available following the fire risk assessments to discuss any significant findings and required actions to achieve a satisfactory standard of fire safety within your organisation. PHA also offers full project management services to ensure the remedial actions are implemented to the statutory requirements.


Following a fire risk assessment/safety audit of your premises, the identification of fire safety upgrading or enhancement often leads to work being required to meet legal requirements. The works may cover several areas of specialism and include mechanical, electrical and passive building works.
