Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
TasFire Equipment meets the stringent requirements to gain DNV quality assurance certification. Although this related specifically to the marine industry, the systems and procedures apply across all aspects of our business.
Fire Protection Association Australia (FPAA)
The Tasmania Fire Service is an FPAA member. TasFire Equipment has FPAA accredited assessors that train and assess units from the Asset Maintenance (Portable Protection Fire Equipment) Training Package.
All TasFire Equipment Fire Equipment Officers complete a full Certificate III qualification in Asset Maintenance (Portable Protection Fire Equipment). This qualification contains competencies covering the technical, customer service and Occupational Health and Safety aspect of our industry.
All of our Fire Equipment Officers and Regional Supervisors hold a permit to inspect, maintain and install fire protection equipment as issued by the Tasmania Fire Service. It is a requirement that any person wishing to inspect or maintain fire protection equipment in buildings within Tasmania hold a permit in accordance with the General Fire Regulations 2000.
Equipment selection process
TasFire Equipment rigorously assesses the equipment that we sell. As an arm of the Tasmania Fire Service, TasFire Equipment is committed to providing only quality products at competitive prices. Every two years or so, a panel of TasFire Equipment staff select the individual items that we will sell on a quality vs value basis. For example the dry chemical powder that we select to fill extinguishers in our workshops is tested on real fires for performance. We select the best performing powders regardless of price.
