Effective Fire & Support Services

Understanding client needs is crucial to the implementation of effective Fire and support services.

The key to this understanding is to build a close working relationship during the commencement of a contract, so that realistic plans can be made and implemented, staff specially trained, assignment instructions agreed and goals set and progress monitored. Our experienced fire safety surveyor will visit site and carry out an inspection, they will recommend a combination of services that reflect accurately the individual client requirement.

A schedule of meetings are arranged for the period prior and immediately following the contract start date, ensuring that plans are carried out in full and to client satisfaction.

It is this constant process of communication that allows us to ensure that client requirements are fulfilled immediately thereby giving us a platform with which to begin to exceed them.

This is a vital step toward provision of a purpose-created service that meets the client needs precisely. Fire in the workplace is a serious issue that is covered by national, state and local government and regulations including the Building Code of Australia, OH&S and Australian Standards. As your fire safety solutions supplier, FireQuest can advise you of your responsibilities, keep you informed of any changes in the fire industry and help your business to comply with all relevant local, state and national legislation.
