Implementation of Suitable Policies and Procedures: Defining and documenting policies and procedures related to emergency prevention equipment, ensuring that they align with safety regulations and standards.
Regular Maintenance and Servicing: Establishing a schedule for routine maintenance and servicing of appliances, alarm systems, plant, and equipment to ensure they remain in optimal working condition.
Training in Safe Equipment Use: Providing training programs to educate building occupants and staff on the safe and proper use of installed equipment, contributing to occupant safety.
Correct Storage Practices: Detailing guidelines for the proper storage of equipment and materials to prevent hazards and ensure quick access in case of emergencies.
Good Housekeeping Measures: Addressing practices such as the reduction or removal of excessive fuel loads, maintaining a clean and organised environment to minimise fire risks and hazards.

When is a Management In Use Plan required?
A Management in Use Plan plays a crucial role in addressing specific Performance Solutions that have been identified as part of a fire engineer report. These are vital for ensuring fire safety and address nominated departures from the building code Deemed-To-Satisfy (DTS) provisions. Performance Solutions can relate to evacuation of occupants, fire brigade intervention; or limiting fire spread. A Management In Use Plan details the procedures required to maintain the integrity of the Performance Solution.
