Benfield Fire is a leading fire safety, fire risk assessment and fire safety training provider based in Hampshire.

With over 20 years’ experience, our mission is simple – to save lives – and we do this through the delivery of high quality fire training and risk assessments, using state of the art technology.

Our aim is to help organisations not only meet their legal requirements for fire safety, and to reduce or eliminate any potential risk, but to empower team members so they can act with confidence should the worst happen and a fire breaks out.

Our fire safety services

We provide a range of services to businesses across the UK, including:

  • Fire risk assessments
  • Fire awareness and fire extinguisher training
  • Fire Warden and Fire Marshal training
  • Responsible Person Training
  • Fire policy consultations, including writing Fire Emergency Evacuation Plans (FEEPs)
  • Supply, fit and maintenance of all manner of fire safety equipment such as fire alarms and fire extinguishers

We work mainly in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Surrey, West Sussex and London, but can travel anywhere in the UK.

How we operate

We use technology to make it easy for businesses to stay safe and legal. We are the only company in our region using digital fire simulators and extinguishers to create mock emergencies for training, and our fire risk assessments are live online. We are also an ethical organisation, committed to providing a high quality and professional experience for every one of our clients. Unlike some of our competitors, we promise not to recommend any equipment you don’t need. (Our people don’t work on commission.) Becoming a trusted partner and developing long-term relationships with clients is something we’re very proud of.

But don’t just take our word for it – here’s what our customers have to say about us.
