SAFETY REPORTS + RESCUE PLANS FOR ALL CONSTRUCTION AND INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS


Safety reports and rescue plans help prepare for accidents and emergencies and ensure that buildings are safe to evacuate. Safety reports guide a building’s design, while rescue plans guide the safe usage of the property after its completed. Safety reports are specifically required at the permit stage for buildings with evacuation safety challenges. Rescue plans are part of the self-preparedness requirement and mandatory for most large buildings, including educational establishments, restaurants, and industrial premises. We implement and manage safety measures in a variety of locations.

SAFETY REPORTS + RESCUE PLANS TAILORED TO MEET CLIENTS’ NEEDS

We work closely with our clients to ensure that safety reports and rescue plans meet all specified needs and requirements. Commonly requested exit safety services include:



  • Safety report and rescue plan preparation

  • Design compliance audits of safety reports during the construction phase

  • Evacuation time calculations

  • Expert support to help clients prepare a rescue plan

  • Updates of safety reports, evacuation time calculations and emergency plans following changes in the premises

SAFETY REPORTS ENABLE COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS


Safety reports are required for sites where particular risks to evacuation safety are present. These include senior homes, care facilities, hospitals and various underground facilities. In these cases, because safety reports are needed at the building permit stage, our experts pay close attention to evacuation safety early on in the building design process. A safety report carried out by our experts enables cost-effective solutions during the later stages of construction.


EVACUATION TIME CALCULATIONS FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF SITES


While evacuation time calculations are often required as part of a safety report, we also conduct them as separate services. Calculations are typically performed for healthcare facilities and special sites where size or exceptional circumstances may compromise egress safety. Our experts’ experience in safety and rescue, and in various design projects, supports and diversifies the results of our analyses.


RESCUE PLANS THAT ADDRESS SITE-SPECIFIC RISKS


Rescue plans that are thought out in advance can help speed up and simplify the emergency response. Our experts ensure that rescue plans include site-specific risks and the measures needed to address those risks. We work with our clients to prepare a rescue plan during the commissioning phase of the building so that solutions for the design and construction phases are passed to building services. This ensures that the building will operate safely.


WORKING TOGETHER FOR AN IMPROVED SAFETY CULTURE

The rescue plan guides the safety culture of a property. While our experts play a key role in preparing a rescue plan, it is essential that we work with property managers and representatives to create the best outcome for safe use of the property. In working together, we have often seen the safety culture of the site evolve significantly.

SAFETY REPORT + RESCUE PLAN UPDATES

Emergency management documents must serve the users of the building throughout its life cycle. Therefore, safety reports and rescue plans should be revised over the years as the premises change. Our experts can help update a building’s safety report and rescue plan when there are changes to use or functional occupant capacity of the premises or when various renovation works are carried out.
