Fire and Electrical Safety Audits help organisations to identify & control both Electrical and Fire Safety Hazards together. They are actually interrelated in many aspects.
Both Fire and Electrical hazards are increasingly posing higher risks to people and property in industries, buildings, warehouses & facilities across the world. The risk and impact in the form of fire & explosion, burn, injury, shocks, financial and brand reputation loss are high.
A comprehensive Risk-Based Fire and Electrical Safety Audit helps to manage your Fire and Electrical hazards together; and hazards which are most of the time closely related to each other.
Fire & electrical safety audit of a plant, unit, warehouse, facility or building provides a consolidated risk perspective to the management and their unified mitigation measures.
Very specific subject matter experts (SME) with education, knowledge and experience in the field of fire & life safety as well as electrical safety are used to conduct these audits.
These audits are conducted against Consultivo’s proprietary scored assessment protocol ‘protoSafe’ which has been developed based on
- Country-specific legal requirements
- National & international codes and standards of fire and electrical safety
- Good Industry Practices (GIP)
ProtoSafe is customised for industry sectors like general manufacturing, mining, metal, oil & gas, hospitals, high-rise buildings, shopping malls etc.
Reduce workplace risks and create safer working environments.
Did you know?
Nearly 40% of Electrical accidents have resulted into fatality indicating its potential of severity
Hazardous industries like Oil & Gas, Pharmaceuticals, Chemical etc.
Service sectors like IT Hubs/Data Centres, Hospitals, Hotels, Educational Institutes
Housing & colonies
With an increase in reported fire and electrical incidents leading to injuries, deaths & business disruptions has become an area of concern for all types of organisations.
Thus, fire & electrical safety issues demand much higher attention, awareness and loss control measures.

Fire Safety related risks pose the 3rd most significant threat to businesses in India. The occurrence of fire has the potential to cause severe damage to both life & property. Prevention, protection and firefighting in commercial & industrial locations are quite challenging. In addition, it has also become costlier than it needs to be.
Electrical Safety hazards are increasingly posing higher risks in the industry and workplace. Being one of the practicing consultants, we help organisations to design precautions in line with electrical safety standards and rules to prevent loss in the form of shocks, burns, injury, fire and explosion.

Every kind of entity, be it a large hazardous industry or a small service unit, electrical safety is one of the fundamental requirements for their loss prevention strategy. Even, it is very important for our home. Few of the entities are mentioned below:
- Manufacturing units
- Hazardous organisations
- Office buildings
- Service sectors like IT hubs/data centers, hospitals, hotels, educational institutes
- Housing & colonies, high rise buildings, commercial buildings
It is applicable for organisations of all sizes and types.
Electrical safety precautions become so much important to reduce injuries and deaths associated with the use of electricity. Electric Safety has become an area of concern for all types of industries.
Nearly 40% of electrical accidents have resulted in fatality indicating its potential of severity.
As one of the practicing Safety Consultancy Services in India and it’s neighboring countries, Consultivo provides independent and unbiased industry specific solutions.
A checklist is a ready available guideline which helps a person or organisation to ensure multiple electrical safety precautions are taken against different hazards.
Safety of a electrical system comprises of many complex methods, electrical safety precautions and controls. They generally are in line with multiple electrical safety standards and legal requirements. A shop floor person, it is very challenging to understand, remember and comply with so many technical and system requirements.
So, it is advisable to develop a site hazard specific checklist to facilitate the effective implementation of electric related risk management.

Lightning Risk Assessment Study is actually the measure of the risk of a lightning strike and the probability of damages. It assesses the lightening risks to the facility according to international standards requirements. The calculations are based on several Electrical Safety Standards like IEC Standard 62305-2.
In the risk management approach, the lightning threats that create risk are identified, the frequencies of all risk events are estimated, the consequences of the risk events are determined, and if these are above a tolerable level of risk, protection measures are applied to reduce the risk (R) to below the tolerable level (Ra). This involves a choice from a range of protection level efficiencies for protection against direct (d) strikes to the structure and decisions about the extent of other measures for protecting low-voltage and electronic equipment against indirect (i) lightning stresses incident from nearby strikes.

Arc Flash is a dangerous condition associated with the release of energy caused by an electric arc. The temperature can reach 19500 degree C. Fatal burns can occur at distances over 10 ft. and sound associated with these pressures can exceed 160 dB.
Arc Flash Study scope includes –
- Determination of the risk of personal injury as a result of exposure to incident energy from an electrical arc flash
- Determination of the incident energy evolved, safe flash protection boundary and PPE requirements as a function of location and work activity
- To provide designers and facility operators to apply in determining the electrical safety precautions like arc-flash hazard distance and the incident energy to which employees could be exposed during their work on or near electrical equipment

Harmonics are AC Voltages and Currents with frequencies with integral multiples of the fundamental frequency. Most of the times, industrial load non-linear which generates harmonics. Harmonics arise from inverters, VFDs, rectifiers, voltage controllers, frequency controllers and other semiconductor switching devices generators, transformers, welders and arc furnaces.
Harmonic Study Analysis is a proactive way to safeguard electrical and electronic equipment from damage due to a rise in harmonic levels.
The study identifies harmonic sources, recommend ways to protect the equipment from power related problems and ensures safety against loss and interruptions.
