Fire Safety Rating Scheme
In response to an increase in businesses wanting to improve their fire safety, Wiltshire based
Assessed Risk have today announced the launch of their sister company, The Fire Safety
Rating Scheme. This is a revolutionary scheme and the first of its kind in the UK.

conversations with leading insurers to discuss how we can create a partnership where both
parties are rewarded – the insurer has less risk and our customers are rewarded with lower
premiums by being a proactive and safer policyholder.”
