Ensure full building compliance with regulatory obligations
Safeguard the people using your buildings
Avoid serious legal and financial penalties
Essential safety measures are the fire, life safety and health items installed or constructed in a building to ensure adequate levels of fire safety and protection from other health risks over the life of the building. Essential safety measures (ESM) include building fire services such as sprinklers and mechanical services, as well as passive fire safety such as fire doors, fire-rated structures and other building infrastructure items, for example paths of travel to exits.
It is vitally important for all building owners, managers and operators to be compliant with their obligations regarding the maintenance of the essential safety measures in their buildings.
There can be serious legal and financial penalties to you if your essential safety measures are not maintained to the required standards. Not to mention the possible disastrous consequences if the systems and infrastructure fail to protect the occupants, neighbours, or the public in the event of an incident.
