Essential Fire Safety Measures… Made Easy
Essential Fire Safety Measures are the life & fire safety systems required in commercial, industrial & public buildings to ensure the safety of occupants in the event of a fire or emergency. The Environmental Planning & Assessment Regulations 2000 mandate that Essential Fire Safety Measures must be maintained and that on the anniversary of the date of the Final Fire Safety Certificate, an Annual Fire Safety Statement must to be prepared by the owner or agent and displayed on the premises.
In many cases, the relevant Council will send a reminder to the owner that the Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS) is due and attach a list of those Fire Safety Measures that must be certified. Some Councils also charge a fee with each submission of the AFSS. The building owner cannot rely on the Council sending a reminder as not all Councils do this. It is up to the building owner to ensure that an AFSS is prepared and submitted each year to the Council and that a further copy is sent to the Fire Commissioner.
Statcom Systems recommends you log onto the website of your local Council which often will have information releting to the EPA Regulations, copies of the AFSS forms that should be completed and who to talk to about these regulatory issues. Most Councils have a Fire Safety Officer or Co-ordinator who can assist with these enquiries.
