- FireMate software allows for ease of access to fire protection Australian Standards™ in a newly built platform.
- The platform incorporates Australian Standards™ in a software application.
- This software supports Standards Australia’s strategic initiative by facilitating access to Australian Standards™.
Australian software provider FireMate has embedded Australian Standards™ within an innovative platform that aims to support fire protection specialists to work more efficiently.
The platform provides users with compliance reporting, asset management and defect quoting. It refines a historically manual fire maintenance and inspection process reliant on forms and paper into a cohesive digital solution.
“As a former fire protection professional with over 20 years of industry experience, I know how important it is to have current Australian Standards™ at your fingertips. We are excited to give fire compliance professionals an alternative way to access Australian Standards™ while they are on the job,” said Rob Thomas, Managing Director of FireMate.
“With our software, we are giving users a snapshot of key information and business insights needed to run their fire maintenance business. We support users from strategic implementation to ongoing support through our hands-on and customisable approach to training,” Mr Thomas finished.
The software fully incorporates AS 1851:2012, Routine service of fire protection systems and equipment, an essential standard for fire protection specialists as it sets out requirements for the inspection, testing, preventive maintenance and survey of fire protection systems and equipment.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Australia, and it is great to see Australian intellect leading the world forward in fire safety," said Jonathon Duniam, Assistant Minister for Industry Development.
Aside from AS 1851:2012, other critical Australian Standards™ relevant to the maintenance of fire protection systems are integrated into the platform. With easily accessible standards in a streamlined platform, industry professionals and their customers can be confident, knowing their safety is assured.
This platform is an excellent example of how Standards Australia is achieving its promise to provide better access to Australian Standards™ under its Distribution and Licensing Policy Framework.
“Standards Australia’s vision is that standards, already part of safety, modernisation and risk management, should be used in innovative and cutting edge digital solutions,” said Mr Adrian O’Connell, Chief Executive Officer of Standards Australia.
“To achieve this, Standards Australia is executing a strategy where innovation becomes pivotal to the organisation’s operating model,” said Mr O’Connell.
