Why Benfield Fire Safety?
Benfield Fire Safety is a leading fire safety, fire risk assessment and fire safety training provider based in the South of England in Hampshire and working for businesses and organisations across the UK.
Our mission is simple – to save lives – and we do this through the delivery of high-quality risk assessments and fire safety training using state-of-the-art technology. All our fire safety training and services are fulfilled by experienced ex-fire officers with more than 25 years’ experience in the fire sector.
Our number one priority is to help organisations meet their legal requirements for fire safety and reduce or eliminate risk. A key focus of our training is empowering staff members so they act with confidence should the worst happen, and a fire breaks out.
The fire safety training we deliver uses digital technology which allows us to simulate realistic fire emergencies inside your premises alongside the use of other equipment such as smoke goggles. We also train outdoors using a gas generator to create a live controlled fire, which we put out using real fire extinguishers.
We aim to become a trusted partner and develop long-term relationships with clients by providing reliable and
effective fire safety services and training.

If you have a lift in your building, the chances are that you also need an evacuation chair. Using lifts in the event of a fire is generally forbidden, but you must ensure that all people can still exit safely in the event of an emergency.
