The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 (amended 1999) requires any business with 5 or more employees to carry out a written Risk Assessment and have an Emergency plan.
Failure to undertake and hold a written Risk assessment is a criminal offence. Fortunately JMC Electrical Testing Services are here to help!
Fire Alarm Regulation BS5839 requires the duty holder to undertake Periodic checks to ensure the functionality of their alarm system. Failure to keep the Fire Alarm System in working order could lead the local Fire Brigade to serve enforcement notices requiring compliance. They also have the authority to close any building which does not meet this act.
Check Frequencies required by BS5839 can be:
- * Daily
- * Weekly
- * Quarterly
- * Annually
All check frequencies have specific requirements. Checks should be recorded where necessary in the Fire Safety Log Book.
