Event Overview

Safety measures are typically systems and measures required for building approval, and are predominantly related to fire safety systems, but may also include other systems such as ventilation, artificial lighting and lifts. Building codes also require systems to achieve minimum energy efficiency requirements.

Fire safety measures are not “set and forget” and require ongoing routine service to ensure that they are ready to operate when required to achieve the life safety and asset protection objectives.  Similarly, non-fire safety measures and energy efficiency measures also require routine maintenance and service to ensure their required level of performance through the building lifecycle.

This presentation will provide a clear and readily understood overview of the current issues pertaining to routine servicing of fire safety measures and other safety measures in buildings, covering;

  • The principles of maintenance – Regulatory & Non-regulatory requirements – Duty of Care
  • Classification of defects identified during servicing
  • Repairs and Alterations
  • Electronic service records
  • Maintenance of Non-Fire Safety Measures.
  • Maintenance of Energy Efficiency Measures.
