Why I think I can help ..

Hello There! Why us?

My company trades as ‘Richard McCann & Associates’. I am a one-man show, The good news is that you get to have personalized service from the boss.

I am a Chartered engineer and member of Engineers Ireland and also achieved chartered status with IOSH. I have 4 years service with Cork City and County Councils as an Assistant Chief Fire Officer working in fire prevention. This period was preceded by a similar period of 4 years with what was the Southern Health Board as a Fire & Safety Officer. I provided fire safety advice and training to 9,000 staff in 28 hospitals across Cork. Consequently I am well familiar with fire safety in buildings generally, and in the healthcare sector in particular.

Prior to this, I served for 22 years with the Defence Forces, retiring in the rank of Commandant and including 2 tours overseas with the UN, including 1 year as Force Fire Marshall with the multi-national force in Lebanon. I have a masters degree from U.L. in Ergonomics, Health and Safety.

I have been in private practice as a fire safety consultant since 2004 and am available to assist you with your fire safety requirements.

Since the introduction of the Disabled Access Certificate process, I can also help with this requirement, which sits nicely with my ergonomics training.
