Fire Alarms In The Workplace

In the workplace, you must have a fire detection and warning system. You may need different types of detectors, depending on the type of building and the work carried out in it.

The British Standard regulations which state that fire alarms should be tested once a week by the responsible person or persons.

This requirement appears under Article 17 of the 2005 Fire Order Safety Act. The test itself is conducted on top of any other maintenance or testing carried out by the installer of the building’s fire alarm system.

The objective of a fire alarm test is to ensure that the entire fire alarm system is operational.

Fire Alarm Requirements As A Landlord

Landlords must provide fire alarms for the properties they rent.

Where fire alarm systems are provided in a house in multiple occupation because the landlord is responsible for insuring fire alarms are checked regularly.

You must also make sure that the means of escape from the property (normally the halls stairs and landings) are unobstructed.

Houses in multiple occupation include shared houses, flats in multiple occupation, bedsits and certain types of converted flats.

The Rental Landlords Association has great information on this.
