Department Background

Our client’s customers are property managers responsible for meeting the statutory and regulatory compliance requirements for Fire and Health and Safety routines at their properties.

The Operations team ensure that their customers receive an excellent level of compliance support via fire, health and safety tests and inspections, nationwide. Their customers depend on them for consistent standards of compliance support via regular, scheduled service visits for tests and inspections, and for provision of timely and accurate issue status reports.
