This is an integrated process that involves communicating with Local Authorities, HIQA and Fire Officers to achieve the level of fire safety now required in both proposed and existing Health Care Facilites & Nursing Homes in particular.
Financially this can be a major burden on providers. We create a tailored package designed to meet the providers means and avoid unnecessary additional cost.
HIQA require confirmation that a suitably qualified person with experience in Fire Safety Design and Management will provide certification to confirm that all statutory requirements relating to Fire Safety and Building Control in the relevant building will be substantially complied with, as required under Article 4(3)(d) of the Health Act 2007 Regulations 2009.
This relates to HSE (Health Service Executive) and non-HSE premises; such as Nursing Homes, Primary Care Centre’s, High Dependency Units and other health care facilities – for new registrations and re-registrations, i.e. premises must renew their registration in line with HIQA requirements.
