back to the list

Stage 1 - an evaluation of documentation to determine that the applicant meets the ’entry’ criteria for the scheme. Documentation to be submitted includes:

  • CV including a brief resume outlining experience in the field of fire safety
  • A description of the methodology for conducting fire risk assessments and a copy template report of a typical RA produced
  • Two samples of fire risk assessments (one day risk and one night risk) conducted within the last 18 months
  • Confirmation that you have permission from your customers to provide the fire risk assessments above
  • Copies of general and professional indemnity insurance policies

The documents will be reviewed and a report issued. If the documents are not adequate, the applicant will be informed and further documentation may be required.

Stage 2 - if the stage 1 evaluation is successful, an evaluation will be conducted. This will be conducted by a URS Persons approved evaluator and will be on-site during a fire risk assessment. The applicant will be required to demonstrate their knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge against the following topics:

  • Safe systems of work
  • Client contact and management of process
  • Communication skills
  • Underpinning knowledge relating to:
    • Hazards
    • Construction
    • Means of escape
    • Signs and notices
    • Firefighting equipment
    • Fire alarms
    • Lighting and escape lighting
    • Fire safety management
    • Related legislation/regulations

The evaluator will complete a full report which will be independently reviewed by a URS Persons approved reviewer. Corrective actions by the applicant may be required which will also form part of the review process. Certification will be granted, only when corrective actions have been satisfactorily addressed which may require a follow-up on-site evaluation.
