Fire & Hazard Safety

A carefully planned Fire & Hazard Safety strategy is essential to protecting the day to day operation. At TRUSYS we recognize the difference between solutions that meet the minimum code requirements versus building resiliency into the facility and operation. Protecting your facility to meet the minimum code requirements will likely keep everyone safe, but achieving resilience requires a commitment to going beyond the basics. TRUSYS specializes in mission critical fire & hazard safety requirements and can ensure your site remains operational.

Fire & Hazard Safety Capabilities

Strategy

TRUSYS provides the strategy to create resilient facilities.  Merely conforming to fire, hazard, and life safety code requirements does not ensure your continuous operation if a disruptive event occurs.  Our expert team will assess and audit your operation and ensure you are aware of your risks.  We develop strategies in order to maximize your safety and protect your operational value by making you resilient.

TRUSYS provides professionals with the following credentials:

  • Fire Protection Engineers (FPE)
  • Certified Fire Protection Specialists (CFPS)
  • National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) Fire Protection Technologists

TRUSYS uses international standards from the following organizations:

  • ASIS SPC.1-2009 Organizational Resilience
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
  • Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism (CFATS)
  • High Commission for industrial Security (HCIS)

Assessments

Fire & Hazard Safety assessments are conducted to uncover safety gaps and risks related to fire and chemical hazards.  These hazards present a risk to your personnel, equipment and property which may disrupt your operation.  TRUSYS follows industry best practices and internationally recognized codes and standards in order to provide comprehensive assessments.  These recommendations we provide include proven systems and technologies designed to deter, detect, report and react against fire and life safety threats.

Assessments range from code compliance review to detailed gap analysis of your strategy or facility designs.  Examples of other assessments include the following:

Fire Protection & Life Safety Engineering

Fire Protection Engineers identify risks and design safeguards that aid in preventing, controlling, and mitigating the effects of fires. TRUSYS Fire Protection Engineers assist architects, building owners and developers in evaluating a building’s life safety and property protection goals.  Our Fire Protection Engineers can provide an independent review of performance-based fire engineering solutions submitted in support of local building regulation applications.

3rd Party / Independent Commissioning (Cx)

All fire protection systems and interfaced subsystems, such as HVAC, should be commissioned by a 3rd Party Agent.  TRUSYS has the capability and expertise to provide commissioning services in an integrated approach as recognized by NFPA 3.  TRUSYS can provide commissioning services directly for fire protection only projects, or as the Fire Protection Commissioning Agent.
