Annual Fire Safety Statement
Every year the owner of a building or premises must provide the Local Council with a statement certifying that all fire-safety measures have been met.
This statement must be assessed by qualified personnel and be displayed prominently within the building.
The Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 contains a list of statutory fire safety measures that may be installed in a building. There may be some other measures, equipment or forms of construction that are not listed, which can be included for the purpose of ensuring the safety of persons in a building in the event of fire.
These measures include installations, equipment or forms of construction that will protect occupants of a building in the event of fire or other emergencies:
- automatic fire detection and alarm systems
- automatic fire suppression systems, such as sprinkler systems
- emergency lighting and exit signs
- fire hose reels, fire hydrants and portable fire extinguishers
- fire doors and mechanical air-handling systems
- lightweight fire-resistant construction materials.
A Certificate cannot be issued unless all equipment is found to be compliant during the test.
Should any equipment need repair, a report detailing repairs required will be sent to you.
It is important that building owners are aware of these fire safety requirements. Failure to comply with these requirements is an offence and will render the owner liable to substantial penalties. But more importantly, a failure to meet these requirements can significantly affect the levels of fire safety afforded to the occupants of the building, which may threaten their life safety, as well as property, having significant liability implications for the building owner.
On completion of any installation or maintenance, Aspire Fire provides you with all the relevant certification including AFSS.
