Fire alarms are essential part of your overall workplace safety. They can alert you to fire that is just starting so you can put them out right away and prevent them from getting bigger. Some fire alarms are also incorporated with a sprinklers that douse fires immediately when activated. However, fire alarms are only effective when they work as intended. And to ensure that they do, you’ll want to make sure that you have them inspected and serviced regularly.
Although most people are already aware of the need to have their fire alarm systems service, they’re often confused as to how often then should do it. One reason for this is that the answer isn’t always as clear cut as one expects it to be.
How Often Should You Have Your Fire Alarm Systems Serviced?
The answer to this particular question will depend on several factors.
For instance, local regulations in some places do not mention a specific number or frequency. They simply state that businesses have the responsibility to ensure that their fire alarms are adequately maintained. As such, many businesses take this to mean that it should be done at least once a year while renewing their permits or licenses.
On the other hand, other local regulations will require the inspection and maintenance be done biannually. Others will require doing so on a quarterly basis. It may even become more frequent for businesses with large properties and more complex fire alarm systems.
Whether you do it annually, biannually, or quarterly, you’ll want to make sure that the inspection and servicing of your fire alarm systems are carried out by a professional. This will ensure that no stone has been left unturned during the process. This in turn gives you a more reliable fire alarm system that will work as intended when the need arises.
