At Warland Consulting we can undertake passive fire safety audits to identify any defects or non-conforming installation that may threaten the performance of the protection systems in the event of a fire. Our team can provide fire safety audits, maintenance audits and baseline data creation outlined in AS1851 and QDC-MP6.1. Passive fire and smoke protection systems are required to be inspected regularly and maintained to compliant standard in order to make sure they are in functioning order as intended. Protection systems and equipment may become worn or damaged over time, not installed correctly or have never had a protection system installed at all. The objective of the inspection is to determine that the nominated system identified in the baseline data is compliant and fit for purpose. Site inspections are conducted as non-invasive visual inspection to identify if the passive fire protection systems are as per original construction. Any system that may have been damaged, modified or compromised by changes will require documenting and reporting. If deemed applicable an invasive inspection can be requested where additional access will be required. Let our qualified staff undergo a comprehensive inspection of your building to confirm all passive fire safety systems are in fully working and compliant order.
Baseline data outlined in AS1851 and QDC MP6.1 provides the documented evidence that the passive fire safety systems have been installed, this includes a register to show which services have been protected and by what systems, marked drawings to show location of installation, along with the standards it complies to. If you manage or occupy an older building, then baseline data may not be accessible or in many cases does not exist. Warland Consulting can undertake a detailed site inspection and create the required baseline data for your building.
