Global HSE Solutions has adopted construction software platform PlanRadar to improve fire safety reporting efficiency to Tier 1 contractors.
PlanRadar’s software will support Global HSE’s GTS division, which provides fire engineering advice and expertise to Tier 1 contractors and Global HSE’s contracting arm, and host fire door inspection courses through its in-house Global Academy.
The adoption will assist in providing more efficient, detailed and accessible fire safety reporting and help clients to navigate the changing legislative landscape, such as the new fire door assessments regulations that came into effect on the 23 January 2023.

Ibrahim Imam, PlanRadar Co-CEO, Ibrahim Imam, said: “Global HSE and GTS has a well-established reputation for delivering exceptional results in a highly niche, specialised and increasingly important field.
“Given the stringent requirements around fire safety, there is no margin for error, and a missed record or lack of clarity in inspection reports could have huge ramifications.
“That’s why we’ve invested in making our tools fit-for-purpose for accurate, compliant and easy to understand data collation fire reporting, specifically for fire professionals. It also ensures that ‘Golden Thread’ principles are being followed throughout, for greater fire safety compliance.
“Global HSE’s confidence in our offering is a massive endorsement for PlanRadar’s relevance and efficacy. We look forward to collaborating with them going forward to deliver safe and secure commercial and residential environments.”
Ross O’Loughlin, head of Global Technical Services at HSE Global, added: “My main concern was how we could speed up our surveys without losing the value within the survey. I wanted to improve the working life of my staff.
“Reporting, writing, and collating information around a survey has always been a laborious task. If we can consolidate that in any way, it allows us to focus our energy on delivering our expertise.”
