Fire Alarm Service
There is more to hiring a fire alarm service in London than meets the eye. Many people believe that you go to a fire alarm service to simply buy and install an adequate alarm system in their property. They think that is as far as the working relationship goes between the fire alarm service and their customers. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth!
We all know that having a working fire alarm system is essential to help protect your property and your employees from the risks posed by a fire outbreak. In fact, if you are a business owner, you are required by law to have a fully functional fire alarm system set up within your workplace.
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 you need to install a working fire alarm system in most non-domestic premises such as offices, shops, hotels and public venues. It is also your responsibility to keep your fire alarm system well maintained and in full-working order.
Fire Risk Assessments
It is also essential to have an up to date fire risk assessment (FRA) to ascertain the level of fire safety cover your will need within your premises. The FRA covers everything from a fire alarm system to fire safety equipment needed, such as emergency lighting, fire extinguishers and fire blankets etc.
You will also need to work out what fire safety training your staff needs to receive, and a system set up to ensure that key staff members are up to date with their training and knowledge of using fire safety equipment to tackle fire outbreaks on the workplace.
This is where your fire alarm service in London can be of further help to you. Not only can you instruct them to undertake a fire risk assessment to work out exactly what fire protection you need, but also help you to keep on top of your risk assessments, especially if you make any changes to your working environment that would trigger the need for your fire risk assessment to be reviewed.
Service and Maintenance schedule
Depending on the nature of your business, you should schedule regular fire safety equipment checks, tests, maintenance and repairs and replacements. You have a duty of care to keep your employees safe from the risks of fire in the workplace, so it simply isn’t a case of buying and installing a new fire alarm system, purchasing some fire safety equipment, and then forgetting about them forever. You need to schedule regular service and maintenance visits with your fire alarm company to ensure that your fire protection system is kept in full working order and that you continue to meet all of your legal fire safety requirements.
