Fire Safety Adviser Service

Do you need a Fire Safety Adviser appointed for your building? 

Fire Safety Adviser Training ensures you and your workplace are prepared with the expertise and practical skills required to step into the role of a fire safety adviser. Fire safety adviser training, which is based on the Queensland Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 (QLD BFSR 2008), is critical to preparing for potential facility emergencies. Typically fire safety adviser training will include topics such as fire prevention (including checking fire safety installations equipment), discussing your emergency planning process, evacuation procedures, and ensuring your workplace complies with current regulations.

Emergency preparedness can help to provide peace of mind to business owners and employees alike. From training in preventing small emergencies to practical experience with fire extinguishers, if you are looking for a partner in protection, Australian Fire Protection is here to help. Put simply, we are good at what we do. We take building fire safety seriously and we are result-driven, aiming to provide you with the information and skills you need to handle emergencies that could arise in your space.

We are one of the few companies that still offer training with a fire extinguisher on a live flame, showing our commitment to Queensland Building Fire Safety Regulation and ensuring our fire safety adviser training is state-of-the-art.

Why Choose Australian Fire Protection to be your Fire Safety Adviser?

Australian Fire Protection (AFP) is an appointed Fire Safety Adviser (FSA) for many businesses, franchise structures, and body corporate from high-rise buildings, Schools, Factories, Commercial Buildings, Shopping Centres, and Turf Clubs.

For businesses that don't have the time and don't want the hassle of employing their own FSA staff, we assume the role of Fire Safety Adviser for your business on an annual basis. This provides peace of mind in knowing that everything is done professionally and most importantly frees you to get one with the more important thing of running your business.

When do I need a Fire Safety Adviser?

A Fire Safety Adviser is required for all High Occupancy buildings. A high Occupancy building is one where:-

  • 30 or more employees are employed or are likely to be employed for a total of any 40 days during the year
  • Class 2 or 3 buildings more than 25m in effective height
  • Class 6 or 9b buildings that the commissioner has decided is an at-risk licensed building

On top of the above requirements, any facility or workplace that regularly hosts large numbers of visitors or conducts extensive operations might also need to consider appointing a fire safety adviser to ensure comprehensive fire safety and emergency planning. This proactive measure helps to streamline facility emergency procedures and enhances the overall safety of the premises, ensuring visitors and on-site staff alike feel safe and prepared.

A fire safety adviser can ensure that your workplace upholds building fire safety regulations and has appropriate facility emergency prevention procedures in place to ensure the safety of visitors to the business. This includes having accessible facility emergency procedures information such as adequate evacuation diagrams displayed in your workplace. A fire safety adviser can also help to identify any other facility emergency prevention procedures that may require signage in your workplace.

Common sense approach

I have been working in shopping centres for the past 13 years and this was the best fire training I have ever received. It was extremely practical and wonderful to have a common sense approach to dealing with evacuations and fire procedures..

Outstanding Service

I decided to use Austfirepro because of their detailed and prompt response to my initial query. This outstanding service initially carried through to their service delivery. I dealt mainly with Tracey, who was outstanding. Every query was answered, not only on time but with a lot of detail (this extends to everyone else I dealt with while Tracey was on leave). Would absolutely recommend this company to anyone.
