Supply Installation and Maintenance of Fire Protection Equipment
Australian businesses are required by law to maintain a level of fire safety in the workplace. Regulations such as AS1851 outline the types of equipment that should be installed. It is important to follow these guidelines to ensure your business is 100% fire safety compliant. The types of fire protection equipment required will vary from business to business. We know the correct equipment for your business operations. Some of the basic types of fire protection equipment we specialise in are:
There are 6 main different types of fire extinguishers that can be installed in your business. We know the right type for your business as well as the quantity and location these extinguishers need to placed. We also know the correct signage to display according to the Australian Standards. When it comes to fire safety, your business can’t afford to get it wrong. Protect your staff and customers and ensure you are 100% Fire Safety Compliant.
Emergency Exit Signs
Australian businesses are required to have emergency exit signsinstalled. This is to help staff and personnel safely exit in the case of a fire emergency. Australian Standards determine where Emergency lights should be placed within a building. We know where and how many emergency exit lights need to be installed in your building. These lights also need to be serviced and maintained periodically.
Another piece of common fire protection equipment is a fire blanket. These are particularly handy for putting out fires associated with cooking fat and oils. For this reason they should be installed in any commercial kitchen. They are used to extinguish small fires. They don’t cause the same amount of mess and damage that a fire extinguisher can often cause.
Smoke detectors are proven life savers. They should be installed in places of commercial accomodation. Hotels, motels, hostels and boarding schools are all required to have working smoke detectors installed. When not properly maintained, smoke detectors can malfunction or cause false alarms. Its essential and in many cases a legal obligation for businesses to ensure their smoke alarms are working periodically.
Fire Alarm Panels
Smoke detectors are also part of Fire Control Panels or Fire Alarm Panels. These systems are an integral part of a building’s fire safety. They are used to detect and respond to fire using a pre determined response action. Larger office buildings and hotels must have their fire alarm panel regularly tested. We can assist with the supply, installation and maintenance of Fire Alarm Panels nation wide.
Other Protection Components
As well as the above fire safety equipment, we can also supply, install or maintain other components to a buildings fire safety. This includes fire hydrants, fire hose reels, and eye wash stations. We can also devise an emergency evacuation procedure. This is vital for all public buildings and workplaces to have. We can also train your staff on the emergency procedures and instruct them on how to use fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers.
Fire Equipment Maintenance
Once Fire Equipment is installed in your business it must be maintained to ensure it is fully operational. Different states have different standards when it comes to fire equipment maintenance. Regardless of the standard, it is smart to have your fire protection equipment maintained on a periodic basis. This includes the electrical test and tagging of all electrical equipment. Detecting a fault in advance can prevent damage to expensive equipment. It can also prevent injury and fire.

Fire Safety Equipment – it’s really important that your Business has the correct Fire Safety Equipment installed and maintained in your Business. Here we have a look at an overview of some of the Equipment that your Business premises may need to have and also your obligations in terms of maintaining and servicing that equipment. Of course – Whilst this article doesn’t exhaustively cover every piece of equipment, it does give you an overview of some of the things you need to consider as an Australian Business Owner when it comes to Fire Safety.
Australian Businesses must comply with the AS 1851 2012 set of standards for Safety. These standards affect retails, offices, hotels, schools and organisations – basically any public or commercial building. They are important because they are designed to ensure workplace / public safety for your customers and staff. As a business owner or administrator, you are considered liable should your premises found to not be deemed “safe” according to the AS 1851 – 2012 standards.
One of the biggest causes of fatal workplace incidents over the years has been faulty electrical equipment. The Australian government has Test and Tag Regulations in place to detect potential hazards before they occur in order to keep Australian workers safe. If you are a business owner and operate electrical equipment on your premises you need to be aware of your obligations as an employer to utilise Electrical Testing Services.
