Our staff’s in-depth familiarity with federal, state, and local fire and safety codes allows BSS to represent our clients’ best interests in identifying potential issues that may adversely affect ownership or operations.
Life Safety Evaluations
After gaining an accurate and detailed understanding of property safety systems and features, building occupancy, and emergency procedures, BSS life safety experts will prepare a well-constructed and organized assessment of life safety features specific to your site.
The objective of these evaluations is to provide building management and ownership or corporations operating within such buildings with a constructive critique that scrutinizes the safety environment for the occupants. The end result of BSS Life Safety Evaluations is to minimize risk and potentially improve how building systems and occupants respond to an emergency.
The following are the primary areas of consideration that BSS addresses in our life safety evaluations:
- Life Safety and Fire Protection Evaluation/Status
- General Safety Evaluation/Status
