Background

EDP undertook PAS 79 fire risk assessments and provided expert advice/consultancy as required for a national retailer across its stores, distribution centres, offices, funeral care premises, commercial premises and private rented accommodation where they act as a landlord for residential tenants.

EDP’s contract covers the client’s northern portfolio of about 1900 sites in Birmingham, vast areas of North Wales and all of Scotland and Northern Ireland. We worked with another incumbent supplier that services the southern half of England and South Wales.

Additionally, EDP completed fire and Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) risk assessments at all of the client’s petrol stations throughout the country, as well as all distribution centres, where we undertook fire, DSEAR and ammonia risk assessments.
