Capitec Provide Independent Fire Authorising Engineer Service (AE Fire)

It is a recommendation under the Health Technical Memorandum (HTM 05-01) ‘Managing Healthcare Fire Safety’ for Trust’s to appoint an Authorising Engineer (Fire) [External Specialist] to oversee and audit key fire safety matters. The Authorising Engineer (Fire) will act as an independent professional adviser to the healthcare organisation. This Authorising Engineer (Fire) will also act as assessor and make recommendations for the appointment of Authorised Persons (Fire), monitor the performance of fire safety management, and provide an annual audit to the Board Level Director (with fire safety responsibility).

This role has great value when it is independent/external to the organisation (and the HTM recognises this) and as so, this is a service that we can now offer NHS Trust’s or other large public funded organisations as independent consultants.

Our lead for this is Darren Kirk who is a highly experienced and IFE qualified Fire Engineer and a Chartered Safety Practitioner who can provide your organisation with the independent ‘expert’ fire advice.
