Fire Door Inspector
"A day in the life of a Certificated Fire Door Inspector." By Neil Heather for Doorcare South West.
Fire Doors Plymouth   Our clients are across the South West and as property managers become more aware of their responsibilities regarding fire doors, we are being inundated with requests for inspections. A typical day will see me head off from home early so I can hit the A38 to beat the rush to the M5, the main route into and out of Devon.

Whenever I am going to conduct a fire door inspection, I visit the premises the day before so that I can familiarise myself with the site. I also use this as an opportunity to collect documentation I might need such as fire drawings, fire risk assessments and anything else that the estates manager or fire officer thinks I will find useful.


This means that when I arrive I am well acquainted with what I am going to be faced with and the scale of the task. Inspections are thorough and typically take 15 to 20 minutes per fire door. So as soon I get to the premises I can crack on with my trusty clipboard in hand so that I can make notes about each door ready to prepare a report for the client that will cover what I found together with any points that require clarification from the Responsible Person and a summary of any issues I have identified. 

This process is going to be made much more efficient very soon, when I receive training on how to record information using electronic forms. This will be see my clipboard relegated and a shiny new iPad come to the rescue which will mean I don’t have to spend time deciphering my handwriting and creating forms on my laptop and clients will receive their reports much more quickly.

I am really enjoying the new challenges that becoming the company’s resident fire door expert are bringing. This is a whole new side of the business for us and it’s really taking off amazingly quickly. In fact it’s quite likely that we will be looking to recruit others to join the fire door inspection team if things continue to be so busy - which has to be a good thing.
