How fire risk management software can benefit housing associations

16 June 2022

Fire risk management is an integral part of owning any commercial business and it goes without saying that fire safety is crucial when it comes to housing associations.

Housing associations have legal requirements to ensure reasonable fire safety standards in their homes and must protect the health and safety of residents and take all reasonable steps to prevent and control the risk from fire. Every home within a housing association must meet building regulations and fire safety requirements. 

However, due to the complex nature of managing multiple locations within a housing association, fire safety can be a mammoth task to take on. That’s why we developed our own fire risk management software that can greatly benefit commercial outfits that have to manage different locations, all with their unique challenges.

Here’s how fire risk management software can benefit housing associations.

Fire safety becomes proactive rather than reactive

With an easy to understand and complete picture of all their current, completed, and pending fire management tasks, our fire risk management dashboard leverages data visualisation tools to present you with easily digestible and actionable information you can use to assign tasks, and reduce risk to life and property.

You spend less time on fire safety overall

With access to such vital data, it’s easy to see ahead of time what you need to do. This allows you to better optimise your time, effort, and resources meaning you’re spending less time on fire safety assessments and more time growing your margins – without ever compromising on fire safety.

You can create unique floor plans for each building 

It’s possible to seamlessly upload and manipulate technical floor plans and unique building layouts and because of the fire management software’s user interface (UI) assessors are able to mark precise locations on the floor plans for further investigation and recommendations. This means fire risks are always communicated clearly and contractors can locate tasks quickly and efficiently. 

You can do real time task assignment and tracking

Our fire risk management software lets you see your current fire risk assessment tasks all in one place. It maps these tasks against the people completing them and lets the user know the progress of each one.

The dashboard can also be used to re-allocate tasks and distribute FRA jobs to internal or external contractors. Updates to the client’s dashboard are forwarded to the relevant parties in real time for complete transparency and efficiency.

Fire safety consultancy for housing associations

We have been working with large housing associations since 2008, conducting FRAs on their property portfolios, and repeating the process in most cases annually.
