Essential Safety Measures Audit – Smoke Walls
The auditor must inspect the smoke walls to ensure they have not been breached. Finding smoke walls or ascertaining which walls in a large building are smoke walls can be difficult for an essential safety measures auditor. A marked up plan with the essential safety measures determination/ schedule showing the smoke walls location should be provided, but rarely found. Any defects to smoke walls must be recorded in the building’s essential safety measures logbook to allow the signing of the Annual Statement, Annual Certificate Compliance, Annual Fire Safety Statement, Annual Maintenance Statement and Annual Occupiers Statement.
