Fire Safety

Tackling a blaze - Fire Safety Division

Fire is Man's most fickle friend. Controlled combustion sustains Life; uncontrolled fire takes lives and destroys livelihoods, some of which are more at risk than others.

With the increasing reliance on technology, many organisations could fail if even a small fire took hold. The accurate identification of Fire Hazards combined with effective Fire Prevention and Protection measures backed by properly trained staff are therefore essential elements of any business continuity strategy.
