Exciting news — Joe one of Beacon Fire Protection Ltd’s Fire Risk Assessors has been accepted onto the Tier 2 Competent Fire Risk Assessors Register with the Institute of Fire Safety Managers (IFSM)!

This achievement signifies our dedication to top-notch fire safety standards. Let’s explore what it takes to become a fire safety expert and how Joe and Beacon Fire Protection Ltd can be your trusted partner in safeguarding your premises.

Becoming a Tier 2 Competent Fire Risk Assessor wasn’t a walk in the park. It involved thorough evaluations of fire risk assessments, ensuring every detail was meticulously scrutinised.

Joe has successfully completed his mission of getting onto the competent Fire Risk Assessors Register (CFRAR). This means that Joe is now recognised and valued as a ‘competent fire professional’!

The Fire Risk Register is a scheme designed to help people locate qualified fire safety professionals in their area. The register consists of three tiers, with Tier 1 being entry level assessors, Tier 2 being fully accredited Fire Risk Assessors, and Tier 3 being the most experienced, nationally certified Fire Risk Assessors.

Joe has qualified as a Tier 2 Fire Risk Assessor, strengthening his ability to carry out appropriate and comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments. Clients in Cumbria and surrounding areas can now find Joe through the Competent Fire Risk Assessor Register, and be reassured of the quality of our Fire Risk Assessments.

As the Institute of Fire Safety Managers, who administer the register, put it: “The government recommends that fire risk assessments should be carried out by suitably competent fire professionals. We created the competent Fire Risk Assessors Register (CFRAR) as a way to help people locate suitable professionals in their area.”

A responsible person / duty holder will be now able to locate and select Joe through the CFRAR, and guarantee that he is competent at the prescribed fire safety level. Joe will be capable of carrying out any Fire Risk Assessment needed, whilst being able to identify and record fire risks,

Joe’s process
