Advantage, which operates used and new car dealerships in Lincoln, Grantham and Hull, chose the fire risk assessments and servicing contracts after the appointment of a new Health and Safety Manager, Greg Townley. He has been impressed with the work carried out to date: "Chubb was chosen as it had the most competitive tender and the work for us has been excellent," he says. "Whenever we have made a request or raised an issue it has been addressed very quickly. I look forward to a long working relationship with Chubb."

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 places the onus of responsibility on the employer, landlord, or any person who has, to any extent, control over the building, to complete a full fire risk assessment. This fire legislation reform also includes those who are self-employed.

"Fire Risk Assessments are designed to identify the fire hazards and make recommendations to reduce or remove the risk," explains Jane Garland, Marketing Communications Manager for Chubb Fire. "The five steps of an assessment are: identify the fire hazards; identify people at risk; evaluate the risk; record the findings; and review and revise with the customer.

"As soon as we were contacted by Advantage, we completed all the risk assessments and necessary paperwork as quickly as possible since fire safety on a forecourt is of paramount importance."
