Waste Management and Utilities

Fire Safety Value

Waste Management and Treatment Facilities present a unique set of Fire Safety risks depending upon their purpose and the type of materials processed. Lote provides a tailored approach for each facility which considers the processing functions being undertaken, the intended operational modes and the type of waste being processed or stored.

Risk Profile

It is critical that these Waste Management and Utilities sites are adequately protected against any unauthorised access or other criminal activity, as these sites may contain equipment and substances with the potential to injure or even cause fatality. Similarly, as components of national critical infrastructure, safeguarding these sites against cybersecurity intrusion and terrorism-based threats is also necessary.

Our Fire Experience

Lote has experience in dealing with the fire risks presented around the development of waste management facilities from both a building code compliance perspective and occupant life safety perspective. We have written about Waste Management facilities from a Fire Engineering perspective in our Newsletter.

Our Security Experience

Lote offers comprehensive security audit services and security risk assessments, enabled through stakeholder workshops, to ensure that security risks are understood and contextualised within a risk management framework. Lote can assist with the smart design of new Waste Management facilities or work with management staff to increase the effectiveness of operational procedures and static security systems in Utilities.
