Following strict procedures with clear accountability our assessors have an extensive and impressive skill set which is why some of the largest property management companies in the UK trust their Fire and Health & Safety Risk Assessments to us.
Osterna staff also hold a myriad of fire/H & S qualifications with all staff holding the Level 3 NEBOSH Fire Certificate. Many staff however hold advanced H & S/fire-related qualifications including the Level 6 NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety which includes an in-depth fire module. All staff are members of at least one professional organisation that may include the Institute of Fire Engineers (IFE) (mainly at Grad IFireE or MIFireE status) as well as the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) (status ranges from CMIOSH to Tech IOSH). All FRA reports are subjected to a validation check, which provides full quality assurance, by an experienced fire risk assessor who has been delegated authority to validate and verify the adequacy of the documented FRA.
All our validators have, themselves, been subjected to an external evaluation process by our Third Party Certification Body, the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), before they are considered competent to validate reports and deliver to the Osterna quality assurance standard.
Operating from regional centres and field based positions across the UK our assessors are well positioned to be deployed to sites in any postcode location. Using modern ‘tablet’ ‘technology to assist them while on site our assessors work though their reports efficiently and swiftly without compromising the quality standards of their work.
