Fire Alarm Servicing Regulations
Businesses are under specific legal requirements when it comes to ensuring that their premises have fully functioning fire alarms. According to British Standard policies, a fire alarm test should be carried out once a week by the building’s designated “responsible person”.
British Standards also outline that fire drills are also a sound practice that businesses should have in place. These may be performed, monthly, once every three months, or twice a year. Being prudent with your fire system checks can provide peace of mind to both your business and those in your building, both from a legal perspective and a safety one.
Fire System Maintenance & The Law
When it comes to the law, fulfilling sufficient fire alarm maintenance and checks falls under the Fire Safety Order 2005, which details the importance of having a duty to take general fire precautions.
