Fire Safety Compliance

Audits and Inspections

First 5 Minutes provides a range of auditing, consulting and advisory services to help you achieve 100% compliance. All our audits include a detailed investigation and review of fire safety features against the required criteria of the current fire safety regulations and standards, including:

  • National Construction Code
  • Building Code of Australia
  • Relevant Australian Standards
  • State-based Building Regulations
  • Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations

Fire safety never stands still

Industry bodies are continually reviewing the Standards

The chances are, while your facility was compliant at the time of construction, you may now have critical gaps in your fire safety systems or your safety information might be out of date.

Fire Safety Audit

Fire Safety Audit

A Fire Safety Audit includes a review of your installed fire and safety measures including emergency and exit lighting systems, adequacy and level of fire safety installations, interface testing, fire extinguishers and alarm systems. On completion we will share with you a detailed report of our audit.

Strategic Review

Strategic Review of Emergency Management Manual (EMM)

A full review of your EMM should be completed at least every 5 years. Our experts will review all aspects of your existing EMM to ensure that it meets your current needs and is 100% compliant. If we identify any gaps or errors, we will work with you to make any updates.

Fire Gap Analysis

Fire Gap Analysis

A Fire Gap Analysis involves a full investigation of your facility and compliance in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards. We will provide a comprehensive report describing existing fire safety systems – including the Emergency Management Manual (EMM), evacuation diagrams, response procedures and occupant training – comparing each element with current Legislation and Standards.

WHS Inspection

Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) Inspections

We will identify any gaps or shortfalls in your existing WHS Plan and make recommendations on corrective actions accordingly. A full report is provided, outlining the findings of the inspection and recommendation to be taken to improve health and safety in the workplace.
