FIRE SAFETY INFORMATION

A backflow prevention device is a valve that prevents polluted water from entering the city’s potable water supply. Backflow means the undesirable reversal of flow of a liquid, gas or suspended solid into the clean water supply. 

Testable devices are fitted when there is potential for medium or high-risk contamination. Once fitted they are required to be tested on an annual basis.

Under current Queensland Legislation as an Owner/Occupier of a Property, you are required to test your backflow prevention devices and have them registered with your relevant Council. Testing must be carried out by a licenced backflow plumber.

Examples of installations that require a testable backflow prevention device include:
  • Fire Hose Reels
  • Fire Hydrants
  • Water outlets in proximity to pollutants, grease traps or chemicals
  • Irrigation Systems

MAINTAINING FIRE SAFETY INSTALLATIONS

As the owner, leaser, agent and/or manager of your premises, it is your responsibility to ensure your property is fire safety compliant.

Aside from being Australian law to ensure it is, the correct fire fighting equipment and knowledge can give you the power to protect your building and occupants from tragic outcomes, as the result of a fire.

Any information and advice provided to you by Olympic Fire Services meets Australian Standards and the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008, which also states, it is a requirement by law that all workplaces are fitted with adequate fire fighting equipment.

It is your responsibility to make sure that you are equipped with adequate signage and that there are no obstructions to equipment required in the event of a fire and or an emergency. Exit and Emergency Lights are an integral part of your fire safety requirements. During blackouts, electrical failure and fire, emergency lighting provides a clear path to reduce panic and increase the chances of a safe evacuation.

It is a standard part of our service for our expert technicians to assess this when they conduct mandatory equipment tests and inspections.

Please contact us if you are unsure of the requirements or if you need to arrange your annual Fire and Evacuation Instruction, which we strongly recommend all individuals of your premises participate in.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE OF FIRE SAFETY INSTALLATIONS

It is Australian law for all fire fighting equipment to be regularly maintained.

(AS1851-2012 and Building Fire Safety Regulations)

Our fire safety experts can service all your equipment and schedule further routine maintenance on the spot, with the efficiency of our purpose-built software system, Firemate.

We offer routine maintenance of your fire safety installations. All routine maintenance is carried out by QBCC licenced technicians and all electrical works are carried out by our qualified and licenced electricians.

For example, were you aware that a 90-minute light discharge must be carried out on a 6 monthly and annual basis, during testing and inspection of exit and emergency lighting, as per Australian Standard 2293.2 1995.

A Queensland Government Fire Maintenance Toolkit can be accessed below. Upon inspection from fire safety inspection authorities, your records of maintenance should be able to be presented.

Australian Standard 1851-2012

Let us provide advice to move you into a fire compliant position.

FIRE & EVACUATION DIAGRAMS

Every building greater than 300m2, must have a Fire and Evacuation Diagram describing and showing evacuation procedures specific to that building. 

The evacuation diagrams must also map out the exit route to the agreed assembly point. 

An EVACUATION PROCEDURE outlines the process to follow in the event of a fire or hazardous materials emergency.

An EVACUATION DIAGRAM must show the following fire safety reference points:

  • The place that corresponds to where the diagram is displayed in your building. (e.g. YOU ARE HERE signage)
  • The route from YOU ARE HERE to the nearest exit
  • Each exit of the building
  • Any intercommunication devices in the common areas (e.g. Warden Intercommunication Points)
  • The location of manually operated fire alarms (e.g. break glass alarms)
  • The location of any fire safety installations in the building (e.g. fire extinguishers and hose reels)
  • The designated assembly area outside the building
  • The main route from each alternate exit route to the assembly area

Evacuation Signs and Diagrams must be displayed in a conspicuous position, securely attached to a wall or the internal side of a door and orientated in line with the building layout. As a matter of process, they should also be reviewed annually.

See below examples of our Emergency Evacuation Diagrams:

 

We can tailor a clear and concise Fire and Evacuation Diagram for your premises.

FIRE & EVACUATION PLANS

The planning, practice and implementation of how you will respond in an emergency could in some situations, mean the difference between life and death.

Olympic Fire Services aims to take the stress out of the emergency by creating a detailed Fire and Evacuation Plan (FEP).

The FEP will thoroughly cover the details for effectively knowing when to evacuate and how the procedure should be implemented. Your FEP should be updated and practiced regularly under the supervision of a Fire Safety professional to ensure efficiency if the situation to use it should ever arise.

    The effective planning, practice and implementation of a Fire and Evacuation Plan is critical to saving lives and property in the event of an emergency. This plan is also a legal requirement and an essential part of operating a business.

    Your FEP document must include:
    • Company name and address
    • The name, address, telephone number and electronic contact details of the owner and occupier of the building(s) and the Evacuation Coordinator
    • Staff Fire Warden(s) details and duties

      FIRE SAFETY INFORMATION

      Fire can be devastating and tragic if fire safety procedures are not planned, practiced and implemented.

      Fires in commercial buildings put lives at risk and can cost the business thousands of dollars in repairs and damage. Having fire safety knowledge is the first step to ensuring a better outcome for both the occupants and the property.

      Reduce the risk by educating your staff about what to do in an emergency, having the right equipment available and staff trained in how to effectively use the equipment prior to professional help arriving.

      Olympic Fire Services can provide specialised information for your workplace or residence, along with useful fact sheets provided by Queensland Fire & Emergency Services and other accredited associations.

       

      Let us assist your staff to access relevant fire safety information.
