The Fire Safety Manual is a complex, strategic document which identifies and demonstrates compliance with legislative requirements placed on designated “responsible persons”. The Fire Safety Manual is bespoke to the building, forms an ongoing history of fire safety management, provides a one stop reference source of information and demonstrates compliance with legislative controls.
The Fire Safety Manual ensures upon audit by the enforcing authority that the detailed information required for the audit process is readily available, current and sufficient to meet the strict requirements of the regulations and avoidance of enforcement action.
Some of the advantages to building owners, managing agents and landlords include:
- Legislative compliance
- All building fire safety information in one easy to use manual
- Minimal action required by the responsible person after completion
- Saleable commodity
- A complete “one stop shop” for all fire safety related matters
- Fire insurers have evidential proof of legislative compliance
- Legal professional inquiries documented
The Fire Safety Manual includes a statement of intent, details of the fire safety systems, assessment of risk, an emergency plan, the managerial structures and responsibilities in relation to fire safety, the applied fire safety engineered solution, fire-fighting equipment provision, the evacuation philosophies to include “Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans” for disabled persons and the maintenance and testing strategies
