Safety is our priority and we NEVER compromise on safety. We proactively monitor your site’s status to ensure your site and equipment remain compliant with industry standard AS 1851 and that all inspections, tests and certifications are completed on time and on budget. Our specialist team of highly experienced technicians are multi-skilled, qualified and dedicated to your site. Our competitive, fixed fee solutions and real time reporting ensure you are completely clear on maintenance history and billing. It’s peace of mind for you knowing that fire protection for your commercial, industrial or residential property is in the safest hands possible. We are the fire safety company you can trust.
Regular testing and maintenance of your equipment will ensure its operation and effectiveness in the event of a fire. Australian Standards (AS) stipulate guidelines on the frequency of inspection that your equipment requires with the aim of reducing the risk of harm to people and damage to property.
Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000, responsibility is placed on the owner or agent of the building to ensure that a copy of the Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS) is provided to your local council and local Fire Brigade by a set due date. A copy of the Statement must also be prominently displayed in the building. The owner is required to ensure that each of the fire safety measures on the statement has been assessed by a properly qualified person. BettaFire’s service technicians are trained and knowledgeable of current Australian Standards and are qualified to professionally asses your fire safety measures.
If required, your local council can request property Statement from you. You may also require an AFSS for OH&S or insurance purposes. It is your legal obligation to ensure the safety of your tenants and or employees. By having your property certified, this indicates that in the event of a fire, all fire protection equipment on site will work effectively and can be used to minimise the damage to your property.
Even if the local council has not requested an AFSS, we would still strongly advise that you have us undertake all scheduled maintenance of the equipment on your property. We can supply an AFSC (Annual Fire Safety Certificate) for all compliant equipment to you free of charge on completion of required works and receipt of payment.
If your local council requires an Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS), you can request a schedule from them containing all listed equipment on your property that requires Certification. This should then be forwarded to us so we can commence testing of these items. In the event that there is no existing schedule, all equipment on site must be certified. Prior to our technician attending your site, please consider which areas may require special access so that all testing can be completed whilst they are on site.
Our fire protection technicians are generally able to assess your equipment efficiently and conduct all maintenance and testing with minimal disruption. Access to all fire protection equipment is required. If our technician’s presence on your site will be disruptive, please let us know in advance.
