Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS)
Its that time of the year and your AFSS is due. Futura Fire can provide complete assessment and certification services to ensure you are complying with your local councils requirements.
While no legislation requires you to hire a contractor to sign your AFSS, you are required to have a competent fire safety practitioner (CFSP) sign to state that the measures on the AFSS are meeting their standard of performance.
Just because a contractor has signed off on a given measure does not absolve the building owner of responsibility. It is your job as a building owner to ensure that the person you have contracted is qualified to certify those measures.
The cost of maintaining and certifying a buildings fire safety measures depends on what measures are involved and how large the building or site itself is. You can lower the cost of an AFSS by ensuring regular maintenance by a competent provider.
