The paper fire logbook, a critical link in the safety of millions of UK buildings has been updated and made fit for modern safety, facilities and compliance professionals with the launch of the revolutionary digital fire logbook from Tio Fire Systems.
Cloud-based and permitted under BS5839-1, Tio’s true Digital Fire Logbook is priced and designed to replace a range of paper logbooks and is pre-configured to bring together a huge number of fire, safety and security topics in one place. It is quick to set up and as easy to use as paper, solves a multitude of issues and radically improves safety, relationships and compliance for all parties, including the building occupier, service provider, risk assessor, installer, commissioning engineers and emergency services.
Full of unique features, Tio’s logbook includes a complete digital audit history of actions and changes; a compliance task manager that automatically schedules and tracks tasks for service providers and building occupiers; a customisable guidance module that helps staff complete jobs, linked asset registers and asset maintenance histories; variances; false alarm and activations tracker; custom tasks creator; fire visitor logbook; and digital documents storage. All users get performance and compliance dashboards, permitting oversight and management from a single site to vast portfolios of properties. Tio’s rapid asset management software, designed specifically for fire safety can also be integrated into the logbooks, giving an unprecedented level of compliance from the asset up and making asset servicing more accurate and more manageable.
Tio also replaces paper document storage boxes with a digital document box available with each logbook. The digital logbooks are just as accessible as a QR code is displayed, giving either open access to the public logbook and cloud-based records or, where security is a concern, access only to permitted individuals and organisations such as risk assessors and fire and rescue services, making inspections and audits quicker and simpler. The digital logbook can be shared electronically or printed as a pdf.
‘Today, there is rightly much more focus on correct compliance, from a building occupier, and FM perspective right through to service providers, and the logbook is central to this.’ said Jason Hill, sales manager for Tio Fire Safety. ‘Paper logbooks are too often inaccurate, incomplete, duplicated, misplaced or lost, all serious issues that are removed in a click with Tio. We call our product the only true digital fire logbook because, while other products do call themselves logbooks, they are in reality limited, one-way customer portals or engineer tools, not genuine improvements on the paper logbook that permit contributions from all stakeholders. Our digital fire logbook delivers all of the required information, which can be accessed and entered on any web-connected device, ensuring the very best compliance and safeguarding the integrity of the information in any fire incident.
‘At Tio, we believe that fire safety, compliance and maintenance are better achieved through clear communication and efficient management of tasks, assets and responsibilities across many teams and parties. A digital record is becoming essential for accountability and best practice. The logbook can be used independently, combined with our own asset management suite, or integrated with a growing number of fire and safety software providers.’
Tio is a fast-growing fire and safety software provider, created and staffed by UK fire and safety industry experts from estates managers and OEMs to service and maintenance engineers, ensuring its products are fast, efficient and solve customer problems while improving building safety.
