FAQs

What is fire safety software?

Fire safety software is any digital solution, platform or app that allows you to implement fire safety regulations and keep a building or structure safe from fire risks. It can be used by a number of different people: from specialist fire engineers to QSHE managers at construction companies, to property and facilities managers. Each kind of user needs their fire safety software to do slightly different things, but PlanRadar can cater to them all thanks to customisable fire risk assessment forms and the ability to create bespoke report templates.

Why should I use fire safety software?

Fire safety software has a number of benefits:

  • It allows you to record evidence in a secure and reliable manner, protecting you and your clients from future claims.
  • It can save you up to 7 hours a week on reporting and generating fire safety certificates by automatically populating bespoke templates with all the data you collect during a project.
  • It provides you with a central location to work on everything, whether you’re conducting fire risk assessments, escalating the risks you discover to your clients, communicating with a project team or completing your paperwork.

How can PlanRadar support fire engineers in their work?

Fire engineers have to be absolutely precise when it comes to recording and reporting their findings. PlanRadar’s fire safety software enables fire safety experts to pin issues directly to a construction plan in the form of a ticket. Within this ticket, they can add any evidence in the form of photos, videos, voice notes and written comments. All actions in the fire safety app are date- and time-stamped so that you instantly have a full record of everything that you recorded on-site.

Can PlanRadar be used to complete EWS1 forms?

Yes. Thanks to PlanRadar’s customisable tickets, you can recreate your company’s EWS1 forms within the platform. You can then enable your experts to go out on-site with a mobile device to complete the assessment, filling in data as they go. In the event that intrusive tests have to be completed, which may include working at height, it is far easier to take photographs and record voice notes via a mobile phone than it is to handle digital cameras or pen and paper. At the end of the process, you can use PlanRadar’s reporting feature to generate a complete report of a building’s status and issue a signed EWS1 form.

Can I use PlanRadar to build my own fire safety risk assessment forms?

Yes. While PlanRadar comes with a handful of forms built in, including a basic fire risk assessment form, most customers prefer to build their own bespoke versions. This allows them to transfer their existing paper forms almost exactly into the platform. It makes it easier for users to fill in, as they are already familiar with every field and the order in which specific fields appear. However, one of the many benefits of using a digital form versus a paper one is that you can also create drop-down menus that display lists of the most common options. This saves time and ensures consistent data.

When you’re done filling in a digital fire risk assessment template, you can also export the results into a bespoke report template. This can include your company logo, any project details, a cover page and a page for conclusions – plus the contents of the tickets you created, including images.

Can PlanRadar be used by facility managers for fire safety procedures?

Yes. PlanRadar can be used by facilities managers for multiple purposes, but monitoring different facets of health & safety compliance is one of the most important. Using PlanRadar, you can build different fire safety checklists that your team should complete daily, weekly, monthly or yearly, depending on your facility. From confirming that fire doors are working properly to checking whether fire extinguishers are inside their “expiration date”, you can document every step with PlanRadar. You can also set recurring reminders so that you never forget to carry out fire safety inspections.
