Reliable & professional fire safety professionals. Trained, qualified & fully briefed on your unique property requirements
Our waking watch teams have worked with various housing associations and construction companies allowing us to offer the unique service of our fire marshals being both qualified to operate as a fire marshal and also licensed to work as a security officer.
Being SIA licensed gives you and the building occupants complete peace of mind that the marshals are trained in a multitude of skills and also DBS checked.
Each of our waking watch fire marshals wear a uniform that can be tailored to your individual requirements to maintain your corporate image, carry a torch, air horn, whistle and glow sticks as well as wearing an easily identifiable hi-viz at all times whilst on site.
Since the Grenfell Tower incident in 2017, the safety and construction of multi-storey buildings, both commercial and residential, has come under the spotlight.
Local and fire authorities and the Health and Safety Executive are now tasked with making buildings safe for occupants, both before they are constructed and retrospectively. As a result, a lot of buildings now don’t comply with the latest legislation and as a result are either forced to be evicted until the necessary changes are made or the building deploys trained fire marshals.
With many buildings being adapted for their use, sometimes fire and sprinkler systems have to be deactivated meaning marshals are needed to raise the alarm if needed but also to check any false alarms if dust etc activates any alarms.
Our fire marshals can be deployed within the hour to satisfy any requirement of any visit from the relevant authority.
Each site has its own dedicated site waking watch supervisor, off-site manager and the on-site folder includes all the relevant and necessary log books, job specific tasks and checkpoints as well as contacts for the key personnel both on and off site.
Our off-site managers hold their Level 3 certification enabling us to facilitate fire marshal courses and assist in fire risk assessments in accordance with the new Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety 2005).
