Recent updates to the fire safety regulations highlight the requirements of a buildings “Responsible Person”.
With regards to routine testing and the identification of any defects, the official guidance’s states:
“At these monthly checks, typically all that will be required is a test to ensure that the smoke control system is capable of responding to a signal from any associated fire detection and fire alarm system. Additionally, it should respond to operation of any manual control provided for use by the fire and rescue service. Similarly, in the case of fire doors that are normally held open, but close automatically on operation of a fire detection system (which are not common in blocks of flats), the monthly check will simply confirm that the doors do close on operation of the system.”
“….if any of these checks reveal a fault in one of the above systems or equipment, you (the ‘Responsible Person) must take steps to rectify the fault. If the fault cannot be rectified within 24 hours of its discovery, you must, as soon as is reasonably practicable, notify the local fire and rescue service by electronic means. You must also notify them by electronic means when the fault has been rectified.”
It essential the building owners and operators, with particular importance for the Responsible Person, are aware of these requirements. adeProtect can assist you in meeting these statutory obligations.
Our aim is to provide solutions tailored to each project, allowing our system design teams to adopt a flexible approach leading to innovative, cost-effective and efficient smoke control.
