With so much to consider when running a business or maintaining a place, it's understandable to forget some things – after all, we're only human.
The problem is that some of these forgotten tasks can have a bigger impact than others. When you're trying to tackle multiple responsibilities, it's important to get the priorities right – and health and safety should be at the top of your list. You can take a look at the importance of alarm maintenance companies before hiring them.
The most important device in your building or office is the fire alarm system – but how do you know it's working when you don't need it? The only way to make sure everything is alright is to make sure you have your fire alarm serviced regularly.
There are many companies that specialize in fire alarm service; These companies also offer service contracts that ensure all aspects of alarm service are performed to a high standard.
Your fire service contract may cover all aspects of fire safety including testing and repair of alarm systems, fire telephones, emergency lighting, and inspection of fire extinguishers. You should also ensure that your staff has designated a 'responsible person' in charge of fire safety and the necessary maintenance and servicing of the alarm system.
For a full fire alarm maintenance contract, look for a company that also offers emergency call services, at least two annual service visits, a full report on findings and recommendations, and ongoing advice and support.
