The Problem

The management of e-waste elevates the risk for potential fires that can release large quantities of toxic or harmful substances into the environment. Moreover, the interruption of activities due to fire incidents comes at greater financial losses and additional costs for the business. In case of an incident, the time spent extinguishing fires can stretch more than anticipated, which might affect the recycling business when halting any activity.By enlisting the help of fire protection experts, the company could minimize the fire safety challenges on sites and reduce any risk to their operation systems.

The Solution

Our team of fire engineers took responsibility for investigating and gathering information about the company's efficiency, reliability and safety by undergoing a series of site safety audits. Utilizing their extensive knowledge of fire engineering, our engineers performed a series of fire safety audits at various service points on the premises of Kuusakoski Recycling. The audits helped to enable the identification of fire safety risks, detect any risk or incident related to the recycling business, and develop the planning of concrete development measures.

The audits have given us significant areas for improvement, and we have also gained financial benefits from the work as the damage from fires has been minimal."
