Fire Risk Assessments

Facility owners and operators have practical, legal, and ethical responsibility to minimize the risk of a fire event and understand the probability of fires or explosions and their impact on their facilities. PLC are experts, specializing in fire risk assessments for facilities in all industry sectors across Canada and Internationally.

How PLC Can Help

A Fire Risk Assessment is a comprehensive analysis to determine the risk of fire or explosion, by analyzing the facility, its processes and hazards to determine the likelihood of a fire event and the resulting consequences.  This involves an in-depth analysis of the building/facility features and fire safety systems and is used in a systematic analysis to determine the probability the installed safety systems will operate as designed and mitigate any design-based fire event. The results of a fire risk assessment can be used as supporting documentation for alternative solutions and/or as input for probabilistic safety assessments.

Our fire risk assessment team has extensive experience and technical expertise to adequately analyze your facility for hazards and the probability of fire and explosion. Our hands-on approach means our fire safety engineers can accurately document each facility’s building configuration, fuel sources, potential ignition sources, unique physical and operating characteristics and fire safety systems.

We know that every facility and every client is different, and we are prepared to handle any challenge. Wherever possible, our fire hazard assessments leverage fire simulation technologies, including our proprietary hazard assessment software. For some clients, particularly in industrial sectors, assessments involve formal, defined methodology and have specific reporting requirements.

Our experience of reporting methods, including:

  • Computer-Based Fire Modeling
  • Structural Response Modeling
  • Fire Protection System Response Modeling
  • Explosion Hazard Assessment (Gases and Dust)
  • Preliminary Hazard Assessment (PHA)
  • Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP)
  • Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Event Tree Analysis
  • Fault Tree analysis
