Established in 2015, Independent Fire Inspections Ltd
focuses on the gap in quality provision of passive fire protection inspections
and offers related competence training. Inadequate
installations of passive fire protection combined with a lack of understanding
of those who inspect or assess fire protection can put lives and property at
risk in the event of a fire.
Considering current regulations, approved documents and standards, IFI Ltd provide independent passive fire protection surveys and reports to assist the responsible person in their compliance requirements; helping to ensure their property is fit for purpose.
Using our extensive experience of passive fire protection, we provide training for those who install, inspect or risk assess passive fire protection installations within the built environment. Our company aim is to offer relevant, focussed and comprehensive training which allows attendees to enhance their competence in relation to their passive fire protection work.
Independent Fire Inspections Ltd were the first company in the United Kingdom and Ireland to provide a Fire Inspection Training Scheme for those who inspect passive fire protection. The course provides attendees with the necessary knowledge, techniques and skills to complete passive fire protection inspections and reports. The course is available online with examinations being undertaken to evidence the understanding of candidates, and to ensure practical application of the learnt objectives we offer an accompanied site assessment visit.
