Fire safety and security

Fire safety and security inspections are indispensable in minimising the risk of harm to people in buildings. Unsafe sites are often a result of a combination of factors including poor maintenance, lack of safety measures, inadequate training, and non-compliance with safety regulations. Regular fire and other safety inspections and a commitment to safe workplace practices can reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. Kiwa is a leading Inspection Institution for Fire Safety and Security, operating in a wide range of settings including healthcare, hospitality, transport, logistical, industrial, (petro) chemical, data centres, and storage of hazardous goods.
