Fire Risk Assessment
A Fire Risk Assessment is a process of identifying fire hazards and evaluating the risks to people arising from them, taking into account the adequacy of existing fire precautions, and deciding whether or not the fire risk is acceptable without further fire precautions.

Audit Fire & Emergency Australia understands that each building is different and our consultants can very quickly highlight problem areas and prioritise the steps required to ensure safety and legislative compliance The services we provide are individually tailored to meet the needs of our clients who require a straightforward fire safety solution especially if they have been served an official notice by the enforcing authority.

We can produce Fire Risk Assessments for a comprehensive range of property types including Mine Sites, office buildings, schools, sports grounds, outdoor events, health/medical premises and shopping centres, and where the Fire Risk Assessment identifies deficiencies in the number, type of fire extinguishers and fire safety signs. We at Audit Fire & Emergency Australia can provide, install and service, ensuring compliance is maintained throughout.

Fire Safety Audit
The Fire Safety Audit is an examination of the premises and all relevant documents to determine how the premises are being managed regarding fire safety. The auditor may also talk to members of staff to confirm their level of fire safety awareness. An audit is not an assessment of risk, but a compliance review of the fire safety provisions within the premises.

Audit Fire & Emergency Australia can conduct an independent, impartial and thorough audit on your existing fire precautions to demonstrate if the responsible person has complied with their statutory duty. The audit will review fire safety management policies/strategies, maintenance records and staff training records.

An audit of your premises will then be undertaken and you will be receive a comprehensive written report detailing any shortcomings, areas of good practice and any recommended actions to achieve statutory compliance.

Fire Safety Strategy
The Fire Safety Strategy report provides an outline of the fire safety systems and features of the premises and it is intended to inform the design team and the client of the strategic approach taken to achieve compliance with the building regulations.

The aim of the strategy is the provision and maintenance of a ‘safe’ environment for all staff, visitors and members of the public in order to reduce the risk to life, personal injury, and property and business losses. This information forms an essential basis on which to conduct the fire risk assessment.

Audit Fire & Emergency Australia understands the needs of the client and will work closely with architects, clients, designers, project managers, building control bodies and Fire and Rescue Services to produce Fire Safety Strategies as part of the design process. Early consultation helps to deliver outcomes on time, within budget, satisfying all fire safety legislation and all the interested parties.
