Check and test your fire alarms on a regular basis
One of the most important factors when it comes to fire alarm systems is to ensure that they are regularly checked to make sure they are working correctly and efficiently. It can be easy to forget to do this and it can frequently fall to the bottom of the list, however it is vitally important – imagine if the worst should happen and the first alarm system did not sound. It could cause a huge loss in goods and money for the business, and also runs the risk of posing a threat to human life.
In fact, a business owner should check their fire alarm controls for faults on a daily basis, according to the National Fire Alarm Regulations. This should also include checking that the sound of the fire alarm is clear and that the panel receives a signal.
Ensure that you have the right fire alarm fitted to suit certain regulations
Depending on what sector or industry you are in, you should double check that you have the correct fire alarm system fitted to meet particular regulations. There are a number of different fire alarms available on the market therefore it is recommended that you work with specialists, such as All Security Solutions, to ensure that you have the correct system in place.
Get your first alarm regularly serviced
Just like our cars, it’s important to get your fire alarm system regularly serviced to ensure that it is operating at maximum safety standards. This should be carried out by a fully qualified expert, such as one of the team at All Security Solutions, and must be recorded in your fire alarm log. Ideally a fire alarm service should take place at least once a year.
