Safeguarding Valuables and Visitors at Rourkela Mall with Comprehensive Audits


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its commitment to comprehensive safety and security solutions through a recent project at a Rourkela, Odisha mall. This case study highlights the effectiveness of combining Fire Safety Audits and Security Audits to create a secure and fire-protected environment for shoppers, employees, and the mall’s valuable assets.

Project Overview:

Our client, a prominent mall operator in Rourkela, recognized the critical importance of ensuring both fire safety and overall security within their expansive facility. They engaged Elion Technologies to conduct thorough audits of both systems to identify vulnerabilities and implement preventive measures.

Electrical safety audit


Fire Safety Audit:

  • Our fire safety experts meticulously inspected the entire mall, including:
    • Fire alarm, detection, and suppression systems.
    • Emergency exits and escape routes.
    • Flammable material storage and handling procedures.
    • Staff training and fire drills.
  • We compared the mall’s fire safety measures against relevant regulations and international best practices.

Security Audit:

  • Our security specialists assessed the mall’s physical and electronic security systems, including:
    • Access control systems and CCTV coverage.
    • Guard patrol routines and communication protocols.
    • Emergency response procedures for theft, intrusion, and violent incidents.
    • Data security and IT infrastructure vulnerabilities.
  • We analyzed potential security risks and identified areas for improvement in the overall security posture of the mall.

Combined Insights:

By analyzing the data from both audits, we were able to create a holistic picture of the mall’s safety and security vulnerabilities. This allowed us to recommend a comprehensive set of solutions addressing both fire and security concerns.

Findings and Recommendations:

Fire Safety Audit:

  • Outdated fire alarm and detection systems requiring upgrades for faster response times.
  • Inadequate fire fighting equipment in certain areas of the mall.
  • Blocked or poorly marked emergency exits posing potential evacuation challenges.
  • Lack of regular fire drills and staff training leading to potential confusion in an emergency.

Security Audit:

  • Vulnerabilities in access control systems, allowing unauthorized entry in restricted areas.
  • Blind spots in CCTV coverage, leaving certain areas unmonitored.
  • Inconsistent guard patrol routines and communication gaps posing security risks.
  • Inadequate data security measures for sensitive information stored on mall IT systems.

Based on these findings, we provided a detailed report with prioritized recommendations, including:

Fire Safety:

  • Upgrading fire alarm and detection systems with modern technology for improved sensitivity and speed.
  • Adding or relocating fire fighting equipment to ensure easy access throughout the mall.
  • Conducting regular fire drills and comprehensive staff training on evacuation procedures and fire safety protocols.
  • Improving emergency exit signage and ensuring clear access to escape routes.


  • Upgrading access control systems to incorporate multi-factor authentication and restrict access to sensitive areas.
  • Expanding CCTV coverage to eliminate blind spots and enhance surveillance capabilities.
  • Optimizing guard patrol routines and communication protocols for more effective security coverage.
  • Implementing robust data security measures, including data encryption and access control for IT systems.


By implementing our recommendations, the Rourkela mall achieved significant improvements in both fire safety and security:

  • Enhanced fire protection: Upgraded systems, improved procedures, and trained staff minimized the risk of fire incidents and facilitated safe evacuations in case of emergencies.
  • Reduced security risks: Improved access control, heightened surveillance, and optimized security protocols deterred potential threats and ensured the safety of visitors, employees, and valuables.
  • Peace of mind for management and visitors: Knowing their mall was equipped with robust safety and security measures fostered a sense of trust and confidence for both management and visitors.
