There are many fire risks as construction sites, where buildings are being constructed or might be undergoing refurbishment. To ensure that the risk of fires is kept to a minimum, suitable solutions must be put in place alongside a certified fire control specialist. We have worked with businesses in the construction industry for over 10 years maintaining and installing fire control systems on a range of construction sites and in buildings that are being created or refurbished.
Fire Protection in Construction Establishments
The necessity of fire suppression and protection for the construction industry cannot be overstated. Solutions such as passive fire protection systems help keep workers and occupants alike safe when using buildings that are undergoing construction or refurbishment.
Buildings used for education must comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. A fire risk assessment performed by approved fire safety experts must be carried out in buildings undergoing construction or refurbishment to ensure compliance with the Order.
Risk Assessments in Construction Projects
In the construction industry, the principal contractor on any project should ensure that fire risk assessments are carried out. These risk assessments must be carried out by a business or person considered competent to install and maintain fire stopping products. We have a good track record when it comes to designing and creating fire stopping solutions for companies operating in the construction industry. Since the founding of Onyx Services Group in 2008, we have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of businesses, such as those that construct homes or commercial buildings.
Onyx is accredited in all three third party BM Trada Q-Mark Installation and Maintenance Schemes, which means we meet the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order and are considered competent to install passive fire stopping products in buildings of all types. We have an extensively trained team that understand how passive fire protection affects compartmentation in buildings.
