Site inspections

The Warringtonfire team of engaged certification experts can undertake site inspections, accredited by UKAS to BS EN ISO/IEC 17020:2012 for inspection services of installed fire protection.

What are site inspections?

Site inspections involve field visits to live construction projects and premises, to carry out assignments on behalf of a client. These assignments may be purely a one day "sampling" inspection, a longer-term assignment, and possibly continuous inspection activities on a building/series of building sites over several weeks. The aim is essentially to control quality against a specific checklist of requirements. This checklist can be bespoke and tailored to satisfy a variety of client requests.

Who would benefit from Warringtonfire site inspections?

Warringtonfire's site inspections can be used by regulators, enforcement authorities, contractors, owners, managers and users.
