Safeguard your building from risks that can impact your company’s employees, reputation and performance
Recent fatal fires and a lack of structural stability that has caused buildings to collapse highlight the need to ensure the overall safety of industrial and commercial buildings. Retailers and consumers may request a stringent safety standard but the manufacturer may find it challenging and complex to implement.
Nevertheless, the absence of safety standards can lead to the loss of human lives and property, as well as the company’s reputation, performance, revenue and business prospects.
Retailers and consumers are demanding a specific, focused and comprehensive inspection and audit process that covers structural stability, building safety, and fire and electrical safety. Hence the need for a systematic and critical appraisal of all potential hazards involving personnel, plant, services and operation methods.
We provide a one-stop service that covers all of your inspection and auditing needs. Our experts provide project management to ensure that your EFSS inspection and auditing run smoothly. We offer two EFSS services to best suit your needs: preliminary EFSS inspection and EFSS audits.
TÜV SÜD offers electrical, fire and structural safety (EFSS) inspection and auditing services for commercial and industrial buildings. These services meet the requirement of retailers and consumers, while facilitating the process at the manufacturers’ end. We assist you in enhancing the safety quotient for your industrial and commercial building by complying to regulatory requirements and your buyer-specific requirements.
This is based on the critical check points for EFSS according to regulatory and safety aspects. It is a one-day audit with two experts on-site to perform the inspection. This inspection will be visual based and no testing or measurement is carried out. The outcome of the inspection provides an indication of the facility’s safety compliance. Any area of concern can then be taken up by that particular discipline during the comprehensive audit.
EFSS Stage 1 audit: identifying and excluding risks
If findings of the stage 1 audit reveal that the building condition is complex or critical, the stage 2 audit is recommended.
EFSS Stage 2 audit: examining and evaluating risks
Once all measurements and inspections are complete, TÜV SÜD will submit a detailed report with recommendations of preventive actions.
