Don’t forget to do your weekly fire test

Did you know it is a requirement to test your fire alarms on a weekly basis?

Fire safety legislation in the UK requires employers and others responsible for buildings to provide effective fire protection systems and equipment for their staff and visitors.

A single named person should be nominated to be the “keeper” of any documentation and records relating to fire protection systems/equipment.  This includes keeping a record of your fire tests which should be carried out on a weekly basis and recorded in the fire system log book.

See our article about recommended fire alarm weekly tests.
