The task

As the third segment in the field of occupational safety, we offer architects and companies comprehensive consulting services on technical, structural and organizational fire protection. In connection with the planning and official approval of construction projects according to the respective state building regulations, we create fire protection concepts for the specialist planners. These contain object-specific fire protection requirements for components and safety systems to detect fire incidents, to prevent/reduce the spread of fire, to fight fires and to enable rapid and complete evacuation in an emergency. We also carry out all the necessary evidence for the fulfillment of building law fire protection requirements on the basis of the approval planning for the building authority or the expert fire protection inspector.

Review and development of operational fire protection management

On request, we examine the operational organization for fire and explosion protection in companies and advise on the specific implementation of organizational measures, for example the appointment and training of fire protection and evacuation assistants, the creation of fire protection and/or evacuation regulations and corresponding notices (escape – and rescue plans, alarm processes, etc.), the dimensioning and positioning of fire extinguishers, the creation of explosion protection documents and the review and development of operational fire protection management. At the customer’s request, we also provide a fire protection officer and take on all tasks in accordance with DGUV information 205-003.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions on the subject of occupational safety / construction site safety / fire protection / hazardous substance management

What is the goal of occupational safety?

Ensuring safety at work is one of the most important duties of the employer. He protects himself and his employees from absences due to illness, avoids difficulties with the trade association and creates an organization that does everything to ensure that employees can develop and flourish without worrying about their well-being.

What legal regulations are there?

There are far-reaching requirements in occupational safety according to the Occupational Safety Act (ASiG) and the obligations of the German statutory accident insurance. Penalties of up to 25,000 euros are due for violations. Likewise, the expiry of the insurance cover of the respective professional association can be a consequence.

Why is the risk assessment particularly important?

The risk assessment determines the relevant risks for all employees of a company in connection with the operational activity. Based on these results, individually tailored protective measures are implemented to reduce the risk of accidents and health as best as possible.

What does construction site safety mean?

Construction site safety refers to the monitoring and internal coordination tasks on the construction site. With regard to possible mutual hazards between several companies on a construction site, the main legal basis is the construction site ordinance (BauStellV). As a rule, this is also linked to the construction site-specific questions about environmental protection.

What are the accident prevention regulations?

The accident prevention regulations represent the binding obligations regarding occupational safety and health protection at the workplace. They apply to every company and every person insured under statutory accident insurance. A safety and health protection coordinator is often used to ensure compliance with accident prevention regulations.

Why is fire protection necessary?

According to the GDV General Association of the German Insurance Industry, fire damage occurs in Germany every three minutes on average. Fire protection is intended to prevent a fire from starting or spreading due to fire or smoke and to enable the rescue of people and animals as well as effective extinguishing work in the event of a fire.
