Emergency Services Officers Provision

Fire and Safety Australia has a strong track-record of delivering continuity of service across our clients having recently maintained better than 99 % track record of delivering remote FIFO emergency services officers to the resources and construction industry across Australia.

FSA has a strong emergency services ethos and culture. We often cross skill our emergency response staff between the sites to allow for a larger pool of workers to ensuring a continuity of supply, and provide our staff with new challenges and diverse experience- whilst obtaining better retention for our personnel.

Fire and Safety Australia can typically mobilise 1-2 emergency services officers at 7 days notice for quick turn-around coverage, and for larger contracts consisting of 10+ personnel, we can usually mobilise to site within 30-45 days of contract award. I

FSA’s proof of delivery is the way in which we have executed our existing contracts to date, our industry leading reputation, and our work with Santos to date. FSA is well versed in managing remote emergency response subcontracts, and our senior management team have more than 12 years of managing these across projects at FSA.

FSA has been able to maintain 97%-100% emergency response coverage on client sites, even with the ever changing and challenging border and quarantine conditions during 2020 and 2021 We have worked together in a collaborative manner with our emergency response team to ensure full coverage for our clientele
