Every business is required to have a responsible person who carries out Fire safety related activities. These involve ensuring that the business, its employees and premises are safe to operate in and poses no significant risk.
Fire Alarm Maintenance of the system on a daily or weekly basis (As decided by the business based on level of risk) is the responsibility of this individual. Many companies call this responsible person/s the Fire warden or Fire officer.
Fire Alarm Maintenance is needed so that someone records and deals with any malfunctions in the system during the period between its legally required periodic Fire Alarm checks.
The regular Fire Alarm Maintenance of your system benefits your business in the long run as it reduces the risks of not detecting a fault early and keeps the system well maintained and in working order, which in turn ensures less repairs and replacements of parts etc.
