At Propsec our compliance division allows our clients access to a team of specialist fire consultants with expertise in fire safety consultation, ensuring legal compliance across a wide range of business sectors, protecting business continuity, property and life. Typical consultation pertains to fire safety involving people, evacuation, fire compartmentation, construction materials and their effect on fire development, emergency lighting, fire detection, fire suppression and fire alarms. Fire safety consultancy is a bespoke service that is tailored to the specific needs of each business.
Fire safety regulations require those persons with responsibility for a workplace to ensure the safety of others by putting in place appropriate fire safety measures based on an assessment of the risk from fire. In order to comply the “responsible person” or “duty holder” – normally the employer or person who has control of the premises – must ensure that a fire risk assessment is undertaken by a “competent person”.
The assessment identifies fire hazards and the steps required to prevent fire, in order to protect the safety of employees, visitors and those in the vicinity who may be affected.
A fire evacuation plan provides clear instructions on what actions need to be taken in the event of a fire alarm. It is critical that clear responsibilities are delegated to key individuals to ensure an expedient and safe evacuation. Employers require formal written evacuation plans to comply with the law and ensure that the key individuals involved in the evacuation are aware of their responsibilities in the event of a fire alarm.
Propsec provides tailored fire evacuation plans to ensure a safe and expedient evacuation and clear information that details the responsibilities of key staff during a fire alarm.
Fire evacuation drills test all aspects of the evacuation procedure, reliability of equipment, evacuation training and identifies the reactions of key individuals with responsibilities, whether positive or negative, during the process of evacuation. It highlights the effectiveness of joint actions between the business and the fire and rescue services.
A full evacuation drill is critical to confirm that key individuals and staff are confident with evacuation plans and a drill must be undertaken at least once per year to meet legal obligations.
Our specialist fire safety consultants oversee fire evacuation drills, provide an audit on the effectiveness and any recommendations for improvement, if required. Our involvement is tailored to the needs of our client.
A passive fire protection survey can form part of, or is an extension to, a fire risk assessment required to comply with fire safety legislation. Passive fire protection features restrict the spread of fire and smoke through the flammability of linings, compartmentation of the building and protection of the structural integrity of the building.
Our specialist fire safety consultants conduct surveys to ensure adequate protection is in place to allow for an effective evacuation of the property. Each report is tailored to the client and considerations would be made for wall lining materials, fire doors, compartmentation and fire-resistant walls, ceilings and floors.
Compartmentation forms a key part of the fire plan for any building and is an important part of the fire risk assessment process. Correctly managed compartmentation is a legal requirement and prevents the spread of fire and smoke, sub dividing buildings into more manageable areas and providing suitable means of evacuation.
Our Propsec fire safety specialists perform compartmentation surveys in new builds as well as existing buildings, examining fire resistance effectiveness of materials and fire doors, and providing a report in an accessible format containing any suggestions for improvement. Our involvement is tailored to the needs of the client and we can provide a full fire safety management system to ensure the safety of your assets and staff.
