As for most of you, 2012 has kept us nice and busy. We’ll be taking a brief break over the Christmas period to recoup for the New Year.
The FSA offices will be closed from 5pm on Friday 21st December and we reopen at 9am on Monday 7th of January.
We look forward to seeing you in 2013!
Fire & Safety Australia – Ranked 12th on the BRW FAST 100 LIST!
Ranked by revenue growth for the 5 year 2007-2012 period Fire & Safety Australia (WWW.FSAUS.COM.AU ) has come in as the 12th fastest growing company on the BRW FAST 100 list in Australia! (www.brw.com.au ).
Fire & Safety Australia (FSA) provides nationally recognised training through our Registered Training Organization (No. 22250) and on-site Emergency Response Teams!
In only 5 Years of operation FSA has over 40 full-time staff members generating over $7.7 Million in revenue in the 2011-2012 financial year…and still growing strongly! As Australia’s leading provider of nationally recognised Fire, Safety and Emergency Response Training, FSA has grown to be Australia’s number 1 choice for large organisations looking to have one national leading provider for emergency response and safety training. With a range of instructors and emergency services personnel employed across the country, FSA have well over 350+ years of emergency services experience within the company.
Fire & Safety Australia was started in 2007 and has more recently brought together Darwin based Northern Rescue Training (Directors Jeff Whittaker & Chantal Whittaker) to work together under the national name Fire and Safety Australia. This gives us a strong, local Northern Territory business presence that helps us to support our clients.
Steve McLeod, the CEO and founder of Fire and Safety Australia said that “Our clients benefit from FSA’s services as we proactively help them manage their safety and emergency response compliance…We provide an industry specific tailored solution to meet our clients requirements based on client specific requirements…we employ only highly experienced emergency services professionals we help all organisations both large and small to ‘forever change safety in the world…one experience at a time’.
CEO Steve McLeod says ‘the fast success of FSA is due to the quality of our team and our joint overall commitment to our 4 shared core values: Passion for Safety, being memorable, commitment to our team and clients and thirst for improvement. Every decision at FSA comes back to our 4 core values and can only be achieved with the support of our team’.
FSA is an employer of choice because of the vision, values and benefits that our team shares!
‘We have the best team in our industry, we have industry leading employee retention even though we ask a lot from our team on a daily basis….we support our team in everything that we do and believe that none of our success is possible without the support of Australia’s best team!’
‘No one wants a company that just does safety training and compliance. Businesses want more out of their RTO these days. Businesses need honest advice on ‘industry best practice’…We believe that Fire and Safety Australia have been delivering this for our clients and this is why our growth has been so strong over 5 years’.
We appreciate the sincere long term support from our clients and team members and we know that we can’t do this without any of you! Many of our clients have been with us for over 4 years and we wouldn’t have achieved the growth that we have without the support of our strongest clients.
This is only the very start of our long term vision ‘To forever change safety in the world…one experience at a time’. We are a strong growing company that has an exciting future ahead of us….we are only just getting started!
Festive Fire and Safety
The end of 2012 is a time for relection for me and I’m very proud to have the team that we have here at FSA. I feel honoured and privileged to be part of a close knit team that spreads nationally around Australia. I love to travel and see our team interact with our valued customers, bringing FSA’s training to life with on the job courses. We tailor training to meet our customers needs and we travel to on site locations throughout Australia. It’s this kind of flexibility that gives us the opportunity to experience the far reaches of this wonderful country!
We’ll be taking a break over Christmas, but will return mid January to an already busy schedule in all states. We’re also trailling some new public courses in Victoria for 2013 – with the first being Vertical Rescue on the 19th January 2013. Watch this space for more to come!
The safety of our team, our customers and their families is extremely important to me and to FSA….in fact it is the most important thing. So I sincerely hope that you and your families enjoy the Christmas cheer and bring in the New Year safely.
We’re on the rise!
