Fire & Safety services

The Intercantonal Convention on the Elimination of Technical Barriers to Trade (AIETC/IVTH) brought mandatory fire protection regulations into force throughout the territory of Switzerland as of 1 January 2005, and these regulations were revised on 1 January 2015. The revised regulations were updated by the Association of Cantonal Fire Insurance Establishments (AEAI/VKF).

From then on, the authorities' responsibility was transferred to the private sector, with a requirement to engage fire protection specialists or experts in order to provide project management or follow-up.
Likewise, the establishment of a quality assurance system during the construction phase – and throughout a building's entire lifetime – makes it necessary to define roles and responsibilities, and to document and train the participants.
Depending on the types of use assigned to a building (accommodation facility, department store, industrial building, etc.), a security officer for fire protection must be in place as a mandatory requirement. This officer ensures that fire safety is compliant with the applicable regulations and the relevant specifications.
The officer's duties also include verifying that measures regarding construction, fire protection equipment and organisation have been implemented and continue to be applied.

Our combined solutions give you these benefits:

  1. A team of fire protection experts who will assist you by undertaking studies on construction or building refurbishment projects, conducting audits and providing project support; they will provide follow-through for construction sites in connection with quality assurance for buildings, they will formalise your Fire & Safety concept, implement an evacuation strategy, and assist with organising evacuation practices.
  2. Security agents with specialised fire protection expertise (fire protection specialists or supervisors accredited by the Association of Cantonal Fire Insurance Establishments (AEAI/VKF)) perform the functions of the Fire & Safety Officer (FSO) within the company, including daily inspection of installed equipment, rectification of faults and monitoring of actions undertaken.
  3. Training programmes leading to a diploma, conducted by the Protectas Academy training department in partnership with specialised providers to ensure the high quality of the courses offered (first aid, extinguishers, tactical assistance/rescue, etc.)
