Why is a fire safety log book needed in the workplace?

Fire Safety Legislation recommends that all businesses keep accurate records of fire safety equipment maintenance, testing and staff training. The log book allows information to be recorded and ensures the correct steps are taken by guiding users through necessary requirements.

The fire safety log book should remain on the premises at all times, and not removed from the location it is in. The log book should be available for inspection by any Fire Officer who inspects your premises under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It should also be available to relevant employees or any service engineer as required. It is important to have weekly checks on fire alarms at different points around the company. This ensures equal testing of all call points. It is adviced that each call point is identified and the identification recorded in this register following the test.
