Fire Stoppers switches to Tio Fire Safety’s Digital Fire Logbook

17 February 2022

FIRE RISK assessment consultancy and maintenance provider Fire Stoppers has become the latest organisation to transfer from paper-based logbooks and instead make use of Tio Fire Safety’s Digital Fire Logbook, with multiple client sites already protected and hundreds more to follow.

Having faced ongoing challenges with the completion and storage of (and access to) traditional paper-based logbooks, the management team at Nottingham-based Fire Stoppers was ready to make the switch to a digital platform. Tio Fire Safety’s cloud-based solution has been developed by UK industry experts for UK professionals and conforms to BS 5839-1.

In fact, the solution has proven particularly popular with Fire Stoppers’ building managers and other clients who oversee multiple sites, helping them to monitor activity, obtain either a macro or micro view of compliance and effectively ensure that all legal obligations are being met.

“Paper logbooks are all very well, but they have clear limitations,” explained James Soley, director and fire safety consultant at Fire Stoppers, a company that prides itself on providing a one-stop shop for its clients’ fire and security requirements. “Tio Fire Safety’s Digital Fire Logbook is simple to use, yet offers many sophisticated features. Compliance tasks for all parties are tracked and managed, with in-built guidance for assistance. This solution has applications far beyond that of a traditional logbook, such as the ability for the end user to see asset histories, the provision of digital document storage for building plans and integrated compliance and performance dashboards.”

Soley continued: “The feedback from our clients has been overwhelmingly positive and we can see the potential to roll out the Digital Fire Logbook across several hundred buildings where we look after the fire systems and oversee fire safety. For anyone working remotely, managing a portfolio or overseeing multiple buildings, using this digital solution is a no-brainer.”

Safety and compliance

Tio Fire Safety’s Digital Fire Logbook is priced to replace paper logbooks and pre-configured to bring together a vast number of fire, safety and security topics in one place. It’s quick to set up and as easy to use as paper, solves a multitude of issues and radically improves safety, relationships and compliance for all parties involved, including the building occupier, service providers, the risk assessor, the installer, commissioning engineers and the Emergency Services.

“Using a digital fire logbook is a game-changer for our clients,” observed Jason Hill, sales manager for Tio Fire Safety. “It does everything that the traditional paper-based version can do, while adding multiple features and benefits that make life simpler for everyone involved. Our customers find it beneficial to have a cloud-based resource that can be accessed from any web-connected device, ensuring 100% compliance, creating an audit trail and safeguarding the integrity of the information in any fire incident. Businesses like Fire Stoppers are finding it an invaluable tool that enhances performance and traceability, while also improving communications with clients.”

Tio Fire Safety’s Digital Fire Logbook includes a compliance task manager that automatically schedules and tracks tasks for service providers, building occupiers and risk assessors, a customisable guidance module that helps staff complete jobs, linked asset registers and maintenance, variances, a false alarm and activation tracker, a custom tasks creator and a fire visitor logbook.

All end users are privy to a performance and compliance dashboard, permitting oversight and management from a single site across portfolios of properties. Multiple logbooks will not be required.
