Health and Safety Regulations
HSE refers to the Health and Safety Executive, regarding the government information and advice about health and safety in the workplace. In order to adhere to best practice regarding health and safety regulations, the directive is that a fire detection and warning system must be present and operational in both commercial and public premises. There are also particular guidelines for specific types of workplaces. For example, if the environment is loud and stuff wear ear defenders, you will require a higher volume of alarm, and visuals should be incorporated to maximise the impact of the alert. By opting for professional fire alarm testing, you know that the latest knowledge can be implemented.
Monthly and Annual Testing Services
Central battery systems should be tested on a monthly basis, with the system monitors also checked for the correct operation. Light testing can be carried out on a monthly basis, also offered on an annual basis. Here each luminaire and internally illuminated exit sign should be energised from its battery. This aims to simulate a power failure, whereby each item can be visually checked to be present, clean and functioning as expected. Once this stage of the inspection is complete, they should be checked again to make sure that the usual energy supply has been restored, with any defects logged. For annual light inspections, charging arrangements should also be checked for proper functioning, and the date of the test and results should be recorded in the system logbook.
