Essential Safety Measures Audit – Fire Curtains
An essential safety measures auditor must have a fundamental knowledge of Specification H1.3 of the BCA, and appreciate the differences between the alternative types of construction nominated for fire curtains to ensure fire safety compliance. With an understanding of the type of construction involved, the essential safety measures auditor can inspect fire curtains relative to the combination of essential safety measures present.
The auditor must source the building surveyors/ building certifier’s essential safety measures schedule/ determination and check on the required frequency if inspections for fire curtains are nominated. All inspections, testing and maintenance on fire curtains should be recorded in an essential safety measure logbook and checked by the auditor to allow for signing the Annual Statement, Annual Certificate of Compliance, Annual Fire Safety Statement, Annual Maintenance Statement and Annual Occupiers Statement.
