"A Type 2 Survey can identify, manage and reduce high levels of risk within your organisation, which may have gone undetected for years..."

 

Why do you need a Type 2 Assessment?

A 'Type 2' Assessment as detailed in Local Government guidance 'Fire Safety in Purpose Built Blocks of Flats and Residential Buildings (May 2011), comprises of a review of the fire compartmentation between units, the common areas, service risers and roof voids.

 

What is the difference between a Type 1 and Type 2 Assessment?

In meeting the requirements of the assessment an intrusive survey should be carried out on a sampling basis to identify compartmentation issues or weaknesses in relation to fire propagation and spread.

 

Why don't all the other Fire & Safety consultancies offer this service?

This type of assessment is designed to be intrusive and so requires a high level of competency and knowledge of fire related subject matter. All our fire consultants who carry out these tasks have been assessed in order to obtain a membership status with the Institute of Fire Safety Engineers. It should be noted that poor quality fire risk assessments have led to other consultancies being forced into legal litigation in recent years.

Once on site, our trained consultants will take into consideration the possible fire growth and propagation from the compartment of fire origin to other compartments and the escape routes. This information will then be detailed in a comprehensive report and form a crucial element of your overall fire risk management package.

Case study: Rosepark care home.

The photo inserted above was taken after the fire at Rosepark care home in Uddingston, South Lanarkshire. The fire broke out in a cupboard on 31 January 2004 and ripped through the building killing 14 elderly residents. This care home blaze could have been prevented by a "suitable" fire safety plan, an inquiry has concluded.
