Security and fire safety for your workplace

Security and fire safety are at the heart of your workplace. They are essential in protecting people, premises and other assets.

Security is multi faceted and involves consideration of security and CCTV alarm systems, manned guarding services, fire detection and alarm systems, fire protection and life safety, emergency lighting and evacuation policies. A full risk assessment of security and fire safety risks can help define the solutions appropriate to your workplace.        

Taking into account all aspects of your facilities and activities, NSI approved companies are able to conduct risk assessments and recommend security and fire safety solutions to meet your needs. 

NSI approved companies are recognised by the Police and insurance industry for their competency in delivering a wide variety of security and fire safety services and solutions which manage your risks and can help keep people safe, property secure, and insurance premiums to a minimum.
