Business Safety Visits

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue offers targeted safety advice to business owners across the county. If you own a business you may be contacted by your local fire station to arrange a free Business Safety Visit.

Business Safety Visits are a brand new initiative developed by SYFR – with our aim being to improve support for local businesses by listening to you. We’ll provide you with free advice and give you the chance to meet your local fire crew.

The visits are designed to be informal. They typically take no more than 15 to 20 minutes and all we ask is that a business representative is available to meet with us. We will arrange the time for the visit to suit you.

The benefits of Business Safety Visits are that they:

  • Highlight fire safety responsibilities in your business
  • Enhance employee and public safety
  • Provide links to free advice, support and materials designed to support your business
  • Give you the opportunity to ask questions and meet your local fire crews
  • Improve the safety and resilience of your business
