Why Regular Fire Alarm Maintenance is Vital


For commercial & industrial business owners in the UK, there are many legal requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to meet health and safety standards. Navigating this sector can be a minefield, and it can be difficult to know how often safety checks need to be carried out on your fire alarm system and electrical equipment. Luckily, here at One Way, our accredited team of electrical engineers are experts in ensuring that our clients meet all legal fire safety guidelines, and keep their business premises protected. Regardless of whether you are responsible for a small retail building or a vast industrial processing plant, regular fire alarm maintenance is essential.

Legal Guidelines for Fire Alarm Maintenance

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, every industrial or commercial property is required by law to have their alarm system checked by a professional at least every six months. We recommend that companies in larger premises, as well as those with more complex fire alarm systems, have their system inspected and serviced once every 3 months. In addition to this, each alarm system should be tested every week to make sure that it is fully functional in the eventuality of a fire.
