I have nothing but good things to say about Bill Armstrong, who conducted a Fire Risk Assessment for out company in November 2014. Bill is very knowledgeable about Fire Safety and helped advise about current requirements and sample templates to assist me in ensuring our company risk for fire is low.
The final report was very thorough with a summary list at the end to make it easy to review and action.

Ruth Seabrook, Manager, Contact House, Whalley Range

In May 2015 Mr Bill Armstrong from AFM Ltd completed an annual fire risk assessment on the property and also facilitated employee workplace fire safety training. Mr Armstrong was both of very pleasant and professional demeanour and presented as confident and competent. The fire risk inspection was comprehensive, Mr Armstrong was very helpful in giving advice and guidance. The written report was professional in presentation with a very clear action plan. Feedback from colleagues who attended the training stated Mr Armstrong delivered the session at a level they understood and he maintained their attention throughout. The practical sessions were very useful and staff have grown in confidence and knowledge.
