What is Fire Protection Assessment and Engineering?

Posted by The Fauske Team on 08.27.19



Fire ProtectionHow are you reviewing your risk assessment findings and determining if there are recommendations and next steps for fire protection? This analysis should include the re-baselining of fire areas to support a fire hazard analysis (FHA). A thorough product is an overall matrix to address audit findings, risk assessment findings and open recommendations.

Fire Protection Engineering provides innovative engineering solutions to complex fire hazards for industrial applications.  Experienced teams can provide prescriptive and performance based fire safety solutions that ensure results.  As a specialty, fire protection engineering involves detailed technical understanding of combustibles and ignition sources, their effect on the building environments, and most importantly, the impact of fires on humans.

According to VP of Operations for Fauske & Associates, LLC Zachary Hachmeister, "Finding a qualified team with expansive fire hazard knowledge who will provide a timeline, budget and solutions can be a challenge. You will want to be sure your engineering and testing lab can provide the following services:"
