Find out if your business is at risk

Businesses in Kent can now risk assess and protect their premises, procedures and staff via the new Business Protection Portal - the first system of its kind among fire services in the UK.

Working with the Fire Protection Association we've created a digital one-stop shop for companies in Kent looking to safeguard their livelihood against a multitude of hazards.

From fire to flooding, ongoing building works to electrical equipment, or unoccupied buildings and listed building restrictions – the Business Protection Portal pulls all the relevant safety documentation together from a broad insurance database, and uses the postcode of the business to identify specific safety risks in an area.  

After just a few clicks, the system analyses the type of business and geographical location and pulls together a comprehensive downloadable document with recommendations and next steps.

It’s a quick and easy way to identify hazards before they become an issue, and with this tool, it’s never been easier to keep your business safe.

Please note: the report generated by the Business Protection Portal does not replace a fire risk assessment for your business - it is a guide to help you determine what you should consider including as a risk and a reminder to think about business continuity issues should a disruption happen.
