When maintaining fire safety, healthcare facilities face several sector-specific challenges. Not only are there often additional fire risks posed by the use of specialised medical and surgical equipment, but in many of these settings, the vulnerability of those on site also needs to be taken into account. Emergency evacuation procedures can become complicated where there are patients with mobility issues, the elderly, or patients receiving specialist care for conditions such as dementia. At Ventro, we bring our understanding of these challenges into every solution we develop for our healthcare clients.

How we help
Calling upon several years of industry experience, our dedicated team of fire safety and compliance professionals are on hand to work alongside you in developing a practical and pragmatic solution which minimises fire risks and ensures the safety of everyone on site, including those who are most vulnerable. We offer complete end-to-end support, from initial site assessment to installation, maintenance and beyond, enabling you to invest in comprehensive solutions that will secure your long-term fire safety compliance.
We understand the difficulty of undertaking critical fire safety works and ensuring those carrying out the operation comply with hygiene standards to protect the patients. To help overcome this issue, Ventro develops a programme of works in conjunction with the hospital that can protect the patients from a hygiene standpoint and the risk of Fire. Ventro ensures the operatives working on site are fully trained to deal with the complexities that arise when working in hospitals.
As with other sectors, Ventro appreciates how challenging it is to keep up with constantly changing regulations. Our response to this issue has been to provide regular webinars that offer a platform for like-minded individuals to gather, albeit virtually, and discuss some of the latest fire safety problems that professionals face nationwide. “The Pulse” is an example of a webinar hosted by Ventro and had guest speakers, Peter Aldridge of NAHFO and Mike Hobbs of Honeywell, who provided the attendees with an insight into familiar problems and solutions to those problems plus a deeper analysis of HTM 05-03.
Ventro’s goal is to make the procurement process as easy as possible for all sectors in which we operate. The framework route allows hospitals to comply with procurement regulations whilst making the process seamless and quick to enable the project to be carried out swiftly and ensure the critical, lifesaving works get done.
- Third-Party Accreditations
Now that the Building Safety Act has now passed through parliament, hospitals up and down the country are struggling to understand what is meant by the “competent person”. Conversations that we have often been part of have discussed what exactly constitutes competency.
