What are Essential Safety Measures?
Essential Safety Measures are the fire and safety items within a building that ensures a level of health and safety to its occupants.
The Building Code of Australia defines what essential safety measures are required within a building. The Australian Standards then determines the level of maintenance that is legally required to service the essential safety measures.
The requirements for installation and maintenance of essential safety measures may depend on the age of the building. Properties built after 1st July 1994 will have their essential services outlined in a certificate of occupancy. Whereas, properties built prior to 1st July 1994 that have essential safety measures are required to be serviced as per the relevant Australian Standards.
It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the essential safety measures are installed, serviced and maintained according to regulations.
