Convenience and speed
The most obvious reason to look for e-signature option for validating your AFSS is convenience. Most e-signature applications allow you to sign documents using any internet-enabled device and not waiting for hard copy documents in the mail or needing to print documents to sign means a speedier process.
Also, multiple fire safety measures call for several competent fire safety practitioners (CFSP) which can make things complicated when it comes to signing. This is where e-signatures work best. Multiple people can receive and simultaneously sign the statement with a completed version automatically sent to all signatories, including you. The speed is the same as sending and receiving emails: fewer roadblocks, more efficiency.
At Global Fire, we strive to gather all the signatories of your AFSS, including third-party contractors. This saves you the time to chase different people for different fire measures. Not to mention you’ll save costs by avoiding third-party charges related to issuing a partial statement. Lastly, most councils only accept a single version of a completed AFSS. So, it pays to have a fire safety provider who will deliver a complete and comprehensive copy.
