the legal requirements

Is maintaining AS3745 compliance legally required?

To start, it is important to acknowledge that facility managers and employers have specific legally binding duties and obligations under the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004; to look after and provide a safe and appropriate environment for occupants.

To be able to demonstrate and identify the measures that facilities must put in place to abide by these acts, AS3745-2010 was created to outline the best practices to be compliant.

It is highly recommended AS3745-2010 be adopted within facilities to meet their obligations in the delivery of Fire Safety practices to ensure the safety of occupants.

A facility may decide to not follow the standard; however, they must still demonstrate in those instances what they have done to abide by the requirements in the act. Therefore, it is highly recommended that facilities follow the guidelines set out in AS3745:2010.
