In recent times, the safety of residents and commercial tenants in high-rise buildings has been in the spotlight. Since the Grenfell Tower tragedy, and the blaze at a block of student flats at the University of Bolton, there has been an increasing need for action to help protect people in the event of a fire.
This is why we were so pleased that Thermatech Fire Consultants appointed us to develop a revolutionary fire safety app for building surveyors and fire safety professionals.
Working with Thermatech, alongside highly-experienced fire safety experts, we developed the Regulation 38 app, the first of its kind. It was an exciting project to work on and we are very proud to have developed an app that truly puts the safety of residents and the fire authorities at the forefront.
In a nutshell, Regulation 38 aims to ensure that information which is critical to the safety of people using or working near a building in the event of fire is communicated to the owner, occupier and/or end user. The information will also ultimately be made available to the fire authorities to enable them to form firefighting strategies for the building/s in the case of a fire.
Prior to the app’s development, fire prevention professionals would need to manually record the data, which can at times be quite time consuming. There was a real and strong demand to streamline the Regulation 38 process and make it as efficient as possible.
When industry professionals log in to the newly developed app, they will be taken step-by-step through the process to ensure that they comply with Regulation 38. This form can be used both on and off line to ensure ease of use without the reliance of an internet connection, and once completed will be sent directly to the necessary personnel.
At SimpleClick we pride ourselves in developing state-of-the-art applications that truly enhance a company’s customer journey, resulting in stronger relationships and brand loyalty. However, an app may not always be the best thing for a business to invest in, and we will always provide our clients with sound and transparent advice. If you would like to discover more about whether an app is right for your business and could elevate your company’s profile, we have written a blog piece that can be found here on the subject.
You can find further information about the new App on the Regulation 38 app website.
