Meet the Team
Since joining the fire safety industry in 2012, Erik’s career has gone from strength to strength with the development of Pyro’s site services division, building a trusted network of fire risk assessors, fire door surveyors, and fire stopping surveyors to support the existing clients of Pyro Fire and its ever-growing client base. Erik’s role within Pyro has evolved from a day-to-day fire risk assessor, to managing the company and validating assessments and surveys as they are submitted. Along with supporting clients, Erik’s role includes carrying out training internally and externally in the form of accredited courses.
Erik has supported Pyro Fire through its third-party certification to the BAFE SP205 scheme, and membership with the Fire Industry Association and the National Association of Fire Door Inspectors.
Following completion of his HND in Building Studies, Shaan’s career moved into the housing sector and he soon gained a passion for fire safety. Shaan gained his years of experience working for various housing associations and has since made the move to Pyro Fire to thrive within a fast-paced environment working on a variety of commercial and residential buildings. After receiving additional training on fire risk assessments and passive fire surveys, Shaan has demonstrated he is versatile and has a broad spectrum of competence from simple to complex premises. Now, as Fire Services Manager at Pyro, he is well positioned to advise all clients on fire safety compliance, including fire safety management, life safety systems, and compartmentation.
