As a result, the fire safety manager needs


to understand how these systems interact with one another to provide total fire protection of the building. In addition, maintenance regimes must be followed to meet these assumptions and contractors need to be chased, if necessary, to meet due inspection or maintenance dates for such equipment. Fire drills and fire alarm testing should always be on an agreed schedule. The decision taken by the landlord about how frequently they are carried out should be based on the life safety considerations within the building, which are normally determined as part of the FRA. This can change, along with operational circumstances, within a building and should be monitored for ongoing adequacy. The same rule applies to safety signage: is it still up to date and relevant?
