Essential Safety Provisions – Maintenance

Outdated, faulty, or ineffective fire safety equipment can place lives and property at risk in the case of a fire emergency.

That is why ensuring that your fire safety equipment is regularly tested and maintained and complies with Australian Standards is essential.

Having your fire safety equipment on your premises or throughout your site tested by professional fire technicians will ensure that your fire safety equipment will be functional in a time of need.

Emergency Showers & Eye Wash Stations

Emergency Eye Wash Shower Testing
Emergency Showers & Eye Wash Stations

Unfortunately, emergency eyewashes and showers often go unused, so it’s critical to test these devices regularly to help ensure they will function appropriately in an emergency.

Studies show that the seconds immediately following an eye injury or chemical splash are often critical to minimising damage.

Annual Inspections are Necessary

The Australian Standard governing Emergency Showers and Eye Wash Units mandates that all emergency units should be deployed weekly and, most importantly, tested annually as per AS 4775.

This is the only way to ensure emergency units remain compliant and operational as front-line emergency life-saving equipment.

Fire System Services can add all your emergency showers and eyewash stations into a service run with your existing Essential Safety Provisions and fire and safety equipment maintenance.

This will ensure that your equipment will be serviced.

Fire Blankets

Fire Blanket for use in a kitchen fire
Fire Blankets

Fire System Services offer fire blanket testing services, as well as advice on how to optimise the safety and accessibility of your blanket.

The blanket works by cutting off the oxygen supply and smothering the fire. A faulty blanket could be challenging to remove from its casing or have a tear that would allow the flow of oxygen through and fuel a flame.

Upon use on a fire, Fire Blankets must be disposed of immediately, and a new one must be obtained.

Once installed, fire blankets should be regularly maintained. The minimum maintenance requirements, as documented in South Australian legislation and regulations, are:

  • six monthly inspection
