Benefits of investing in fire risk management software

6 May 2022

Fire risk management software has the ability to make the fire risk assessment process as efficient and seamless as possible. Now, businesses can allocate jobs, prioritise and complete actions, as well as stay up to date with the fire safety of their building or buildings. Specially designed fire risk management software helps users manage and maintain various sites and the operations at those sites. Implementing this software has the ability to transform the way you conduct your processes, it could be a real game changer in terms of time efficiency and productivity. 

5 key benefits of utilising fire risk management software:

1. Have everything you need in one place

In the past, when conducting a fire risk assessment you might have had multiple spreadsheets in operation at any one time. This can create an operational risk, and runs the risk of not being compliant. Fire risk management software, however, reduces this risk of not being compliant with fire safety regulations. You now have access to everything, seamlessly on one device, and keep up to date with latest updates and fire safety laws.

2. Reduce paperwork

Having all of your fire risk management needs online, in one place, on one system, removes the need to have to record everything by hand. Additionally, you no longer need to sift through a mountain of paperwork when you want to look at past documents.

3. Allocate tasks easily

You can allocate fire risk management actions to the relevant person, right through to sign off or completion. The process of allocating tasks is made more straightforward by using a software solution, and you no longer have to manually chase people on projects. Progress is all readily available within the software, so you can monitor with ease.

Fire safety software, such as Aurora, has a dashboard which provides a global view of all your fire safety assessors and their workloads, allowing you to view in-progress and overdue assessments.

4. Add updates 

Updating the progress of a particular project has never been easier. You can make updates at any time, from any place and view past updates on the system too. Fire risk management software also allows you to create extensive, bespoke digital reports in minutes.

5. Better protection

Conducting multiple fire risk assessments across several properties is a big undertaking, and when it comes to fire safety, things can’t afford to be slipped through the net. Not to mention the continuous updates and fire risk management – fire safety isn’t one quick fix. It needs to be continuously monitored and for many businesses, this is a lot of work to take on. But keeping employees and anyone else in the building safe is absolutely essential. Fire risk management software means you can stay on top of fire risks, ensure the building is safe and up to date with the latest fire legislation, and that tasks are completed by the appropriate people.

Who might fire risk management software benefit?

Every business or building needs a plan in place when it comes to fire risk management. Conducting fire risk assessments is just the beginning – fire safety is an ongoing priority. While any commercial property would benefit from fire risk management software, it’ll be particularly useful for those with multiple businesses or with multiple sites within a business. Whether that’s office blocks, restaurants, schools, apartment buildings, hotels, and so on, having a system in place that can efficiently manage all of those buildings will make life so much easier. It’ll also be safer, too.
