Fire alarm systems are vital in ensuring the safety of a building and its occupants. In order to ensure that these systems are functioning properly, it is recommended that they be inspected by a competent person at least every six months. This professional testing will cover factors such as the logbook inspection, visual call point inspections, visual inspection of detectors and other devices, and inspection of any building changes (layout, alterations). Changes to use or occupancy levels may also be taken into account. 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. Therefore, it is essential that you keep up with the recommended schedule of inspections in order to maintain a safe environment.
