For your safety and as required by law, we conduct regular inspections of communal fire alarm systems, as well as emergency lighting, smoke detectors and fire equipment. We then have to conduct responsive repairs as a result of those surveys to make sure everything is working correctly and up to standard.

Fire risk assessments are also carried out, which is a full inspection of a building to identify any hazards, and reduce the risk of those hazards.

What is a fire safety check?

Fire safety checks include regular (monthly, quarterly or annual) checks to a number of different fire safety related equipment. This can include dry risers, smoke or heat detectors, or emergency lighting. Some of our blocks may have all of these items that require checking, others may only have one or two.
