CFA has developed new resources to support industry and commercial business owners to be fire safe.
The six Building Essential Fire Safety Measures Factsheets cover the requirements for and use of portable firefighting equipment including extinguishers, hose reels and fire blankets.
They also include information specific to building owner occupiers about their legal obligations in keeping people safe from fire including the installation of fire detection and alarm systems, fire doors, emergency lighting and fire hydrants.
The Building Essential Fire Safety Measures Factsheets can be downloaded and printed from the CFA website here.
“CFA’s Community Infrastructure team provides prevention, awareness and education programs to support industry with fire safety advice and works closely with industry and industry bodies to reduce both the likelihood and severity of fire and other emergencies,” Head of Community Infrastructure Andrew Andreou said.
“These fact sheets build on our suite of education tools designed to promote fire-safe industries which includes a variety of industry training opportunities, online training programs and guidelines that identify and provide recommendations for reducing fire risk.”
