Fire is a formidable danger in Australia. Compliant equipment is vital to protect your business, premises and the lives of your employees and visitors. This is why Allied Pumps is dedicated to fire safety and compliance. We want to make sure everyone is aware of the importance of your systems and equipment complying with Australian Standards.
As you can see in this video from Perth Airport, they take their fire safety responsibilities extremely seriously, and you should follow their example. Australian Standards sets out specifications and procedures designed to ensure that equipment and materials are fit for purpose. All equipment is correctly located and installed to make sure risk to life is minimised in the event of a fire.
At present, however, compliance is not required by law – but it is highly advisable if you value your business and the lives of your workers. Alarming reports show that less than 50 percent of building occupants feel confident about fire procedures, as they are unsure of what actions to take and where to evacuate to in an emergency. As a business owner, it’s up to you to ensure your staff are fully aware of fire safety procedures and that your equipment is fit for purpose.
In business, time is precious. There are occasions when important tasks can be overlooked. When was the last time you had your equipment tested for fire safety? Over time, its performance may decrease. It’s essential to check that all equipment is still compliant with standards – this could save lives.
Allied Pumps is dedicated to fire safety standards. We will work with you at every stage from design through to commissioning to make sure we are providing you with a system tailored to meet your specific needs. If your system is out-of-specification, it may be time for a refurbishment.
