Protecting Your Building through Fire Preventive Maintenance

Updated: Mar 11, 2019



Fire safety is important to all users of a building. Keeping your building safe from fire hazards is as important as keeping your building services functioning for all users to enjoy their visit — this is where Fire Preventive Maintenance comes in.


FIRE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE


An integral part of fire safety is Fire Preventive Maintenance to safeguard lives and properties. It is considered part of the building requirements, under the Fire Safety Act (Chapter 109A), where it is mandatory for every building to ensure that its fire safety systems are reliable and operations are optimised against fire risk and false alarms.


IMPACT OF FIRE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAMME


A properly planned and executed Fire Preventive Maintenance programme will minimize costly downtime and increase the longevity of your systems. With these pre-emptive measures in place, you can enjoy peace of mind while getting value-added incentives from your fire safety systems.


The impact of NOT having such a programme may result in the operational failure of building services. The consequences may be costly, such as injury and loss of life, structural damage, compromised building security, costly disruptions, loss of data and negative impacts on public relations. We would not want building tenants and visitors to be uncertain, fearful and at risk when visiting a building.
