Fire alarm systems are an essential part of any building's fire safety plan. In order to ensure that they are functioning properly, it is recommended that they be inspected on a regular basis by a competent person. Fire alarm system inspections should cover all of the following areas: logbook inspection, visual call point inspection, visual inspection of detectors and other devices, and inspection of any building changes (layout, alterations). Changes to use or occupancy levels may also require additional inspection. Failure to meet the six-month inspection quota means that your system will not be deemed compliant with British Standards, something which could cause issues if you are tasked with proving that your building meets required fire safety regulations. Regular fire alarm system inspections are the best way to ensure that your building is up to code and prepared in the event of a fire.
