Conduct the Annual Fire Safety Statement and check service equipment
Mass increases in working and schooling from home makes fire safety inspections more important than ever. Ensure all your fire safety measures meet regulations and that your building is fire compliant.
Annual fire safety certifications are a statutory requirement that verify your property according to its building class, making sure that it meets a range of required fire safety measures. The measures include smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, fire doors, reels and hydrants, emergency lighting and signs, and evacuation plans and paths. Importantly, the certification also checks that these measures are in working order and are not obstructed.
With various names across states, fire safety certificates are known as the Annual Fire Safety Statement in New South Wales, the Annual Occupier’s Statement in Queensland, and the Annual Essential Safety Measures Report in Victoria.
Failure to comply with legislation or to submit annual fire safety certification reports on time may result in fines issued by local authorities, restrictions in premises use, and the issuing of fire orders.
